The role of monocytes and SLC11A1 polymorphisms in the pathogenesis of Chlamydia-induced reactive arthritis.


OBJECTIVES To investigate the role that monocytes and solute carrier family 11 member A1 (SLC11A1) gene polymorphisms play in the pathogenesis of reactive arthritis (ReA). METHODS SLC11A1 274C/T and 823C/T polymorphisms were determined by polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP). The phagocytic activity of monocytes… (More)
