In psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), inflammatory responses are characterized by increased production of pro-inflammatory molecules secreted by various immune cells. The main objectives of our study were: i) to measure levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cyto-chemokines and soluble factors expressed in both PsA and RA SF; ii) to characterize the phenotype of infiltrated leuko-lymphocytes and; iii) to identify specific synovial biomarkers for both diseases. Notably, Synovial Fluid (SF) samples obtained from PsA and RA populations were compared with SF samples collected from clinically active osteoarthritis (OA) joints.

Abstract

In psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), inflammatory responses are characterized by increased production of pro-inflammatory molecules secreted by various immune cells. The main objectives of our study were: i) to measure levels of pro- and anti-inflammatory cyto-chemokines and soluble factors expressed in both PsA and RA SF; ii) to characterize the phenotype of infiltrated leuko-lymphocytes and; iii) to identify specific synovial biomarkers for both diseases. Notably, Synovial Fluid (SF) samples obtained from PsA and RA populations were compared with SF samples collected from clinically active osteoarthritis (OA) joints.
