Role of chemokines/chemokine receptor systems in cartilage degradation.

Abstract

The underlying mechanism of the degradation of articular cartilage is an imbalance between anabolic and catabolic pathways, which are under the control of cytokines. Chemokines are a novel class of small cytokines and have a wide range of effects in many different cell types, both inside and outside of the immune system. Their actions are mediated by a… (More)
