OBJECTIVES To compare the synovial fluid (SF) concentrations of various cytokines in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and in reactive arthritis, and to look for a correlation between cytokine levels and the presence of HLA-B27 antigen in reactive arthritis patients. METHODS Concentrations of interleukin (IL) 10, IL-12, IL-18, interferon gamma (IFN-gamma) and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) were determined by commercially available enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) in the SF from 48… CONTINUE READING
