Numerous studies have focused on the significance of modern marker proteins in the synovial fluid of the knee joint and in the serum both, for osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The relationship between the serum concentrations and the concentrations in the synovial fluid is still unclear. Synovial fluid and serum samples were obtained from 13 patients with advanced OA and from 8 patients with severe RA and concentrations of MMP-1, MMP-3, MMP-13, TIMP-1, COMP and MIA/CD-RAP were… CONTINUE READING
