Periarticular tissue levels of cytokine- and endothelin-1-like immunoreactivity during the course of antigen-induced arthritis in the rat

Abstract

Objective and Design: To correlate the changes in periarticular tissue levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines and endothelin-1 (ET-1) to local pathophysiology in rats with antigen-induced arthritis (AIA).¶Materials: The periarticular soft tissue was excised from sixty-six rats at different stages of AIA.¶Methods: The samples were homogenized and the levels of… (More)
