Oxidative stress and inflammatory processes accelerate the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGE), e.g. of pentosidine. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between levels of pentosidine in serum and synovial fluid, proinflammatory cytokines, other markers of inflammatory activity, and the state of radiologically visible bone destruction in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). One hundred thirty-three nondiabetic RA patients and 56 age-matched, healthy… CONTINUE READING
