OBJECTIVES Chemerin and interleukin (IL)-8 are pro-inflammatory mediators whose role in joint inflammation and cartilage degradation has been demonstrated in in-vitro findings. Studies on their presence in synovial fluid (SF) samples may offer further information on their pathogenic role. The aim of this study was to investigate SF chemerin and IL-8 levels in patients with different joint diseases. METHODS 37 patients were enrolled: 18 with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), 8 with psoriatic… CONTINUE READING
