Susceptibility to pristane-induced arthritis is altered with changes in bowel flora.

Abstract

Pristane-induced arthritis (PIA) is unique among the animal arthritides in that a non-infectious, non-antigenic oil induces a chronic immune based arthritis with a prolonged delay between exposure to the inciting agent and development of the disease. Mice with pristane-induced arthritis have elevated T cell and humoral responses to the 65 kDa heat shock… (More)
