PurposeThe progress in identifying immunological mechanisms in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) has partly been hampered by the fact that the disease is heterogeneous. Here we have investigated complement and Fc receptors, as part of the inflammatory process, in two subgroups of JIA.MethodsBlood from 26 patients with oligoarticular or polyarticular course type JIA and 21 healthy age and sex-matched controls were investigated by FACS and immunoassays.ResultsIncreased numbers of monocytes and… CONTINUE READING
