Relation between synovial fluid C 3 degradation products and local joint inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis , osteoarthritis , and crystal associated

Abstract

C3 degradation products (C3dg/d) were estimated in 288 synovial fluid (SF) samples (rheumatoid arthritis (RA) 93, osteoarthritis (OA) 68, chronic pyrophosphate arthropathy 80, acute pseudogout 20, others 27) from knees of 138 patients (bilateral 67, serial sampling on two to six occasions 40). At each aspiration knees were defined as 'active' or 'inactive… (More)
