Immunoregulatory lymphokines in rheumatoid joints. II. Production by and responsiveness to interleukin-2 of eluted synovial tissue cells.

Abstract

Since the role of interleukin-2 (IL-2) in rheumatoid synovial joints has been debated, we examined IL-2 production by, and IL-2 responsiveness of, cells eluted from synovial tissue (ST) of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). IL-2 was not detected in unstimulated cell-culture supernatants from any of the four RA… (More)
