Enhanced synthesis of cysteinyl leukotrienes in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Endogenous synthesis of cysteinyl leukotrienes in juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) was investigated. METHODS Cysteinyl leukotriene synthesis was assessed by measuring the excretion of leukotriene E4 (LTE4) in urine by radioimmunoassay. The identity of urinary LTE4 was investigated by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and 2,3-dinor… (More)
