Differences in synovial tissue infiltrates between anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide-positive rheumatoid arthritis and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide-negative rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To compare synovial tissue infiltrates from patients with anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP)-positive rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with those from patients with anti-CCP-negative RA. METHODS Synovial tissue samples were obtained arthroscopically from the inflamed knee joints of 57 patients with RA (34 of whom were anti-CCP positive) and… (More)
