Modulation of monocyte chemotactic function in inflammatory lesions. Role of inflammatory mediators.


Monocyte recruitment and accumulation in the synovial tissue is pivotal in the evolution of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In the present study we examined the chemotactic potential of monocytes obtained from synovial fluid (SF) of patients with RA. Functionally, SF monocytes exhibited greatly diminished chemotactic activity to C5a compared with monocytes from… (More)
