BACKGROUND Fractalkine has been detected in synovial fluid (SF) from osteoarthritis (OA) patients. This study aims to examine the relation of fractalkine concentrations in serum and SF with the radiographic severity of OA. METHODS Fractalkine concentrations of serum and SF were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay method in 223 patients with knee OA and 165 healthy controls. The progression of OA was classified according to the Kellgren-Lawrence grading system. RESULTS… CONTINUE READING
