OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between serum G-CSF, RA disease activity and the levels of inflammatory cytokines. METHODS Sixty-one patients (5 men and 56 women; mean age; 56.1 +/- 11.4 [+/- SD] years, range, 22-70 years) who were selected at random and met the American College of Rheumatology criteria for RA were examined. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) levels in sera and synovial fluid were measured by solid-phase radioimmunoassay (RIA). We also measured various… CONTINUE READING
