Objective Hypercholesterolaemia, a risk factor for atherosclerosis (ATH), has been suggested to have a role in the development of osteoarthritis (OA). To test this hypothesis, the effect of cholesterol and different cholesterol-lowering treatments on OA was investigated in a mouse model resembling human lipoprotein metabolism. Methods Female...

Objective The infrapatellar fat pad (IPFP) in the knee joint is hypothesized to contribute to osteoarthritis (OA) development by the IFPF possibly by influencing inflammatory processes. Oxylipins are essential mediators in the inflammatory process. We undertook this study to investigate secretion by the IFPF of fatty acids and oxylipins derived...

Objective: Soluble mediators in synovial fluid (SF) are acknowledged as key players in the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis (OA). However, a wide-spectrum screening of such mediators in SF is currently lacking. In this study, the levels of 47 mediators in the SF of control donors and osteoarthritic (OA) patients were compared. Materials &...

Genetic factors appear to be important in the process of restenosis after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), as well as in inflammation, a pivotal factor in restenosis. An important mediator in the inflammatory response is interleukin (IL)-10. Our aim was to study whether genetic variants in IL-10 predispose to the risk of restenosis. The...

Ligands for the receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) are increased in RA synovial fluid (SF), serum and synovium. Since RAGE is present on fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS), the present study investigates whether the RAGE ligands HMGB-1 and AGEs are able to stimulate the characteristic, pathological invasive behaviour of these...

Objective: In vitro models for joint diseases often focus on a single cell type, such as chondrocytes in osteoarthritis (OA) or fibroblast-like synoviocytes (synoviocytes) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, these joint diseases affect the whole joint and interaction between chondrocytes and synoviocytes may play an important role in disease...

Objective. The major risk factor for osteoarthritis (OA) is aging, but the mechanisms underlying this risk are only partly understood. Age-related accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) could be one of these mechanisms. We undertook this study to investigate the role of the receptor for AGEs (RAGE) in mediating the cellular...

The hallmark of fibrosis is the excessive accumulation of collagen. The deposited collagen contains increased pyridinoline cross-link levels due to an overhydroxylation of lysine residues within the collagen telopeptides. Lysyl hydroxylase 2b (LH2b) is the only lysyl hydroxylase consistently up-regulated in several forms of fibrosis, suggesting...

Fibrotic processes in humans are characterised by an excessive accumulation of collagen containing increased levels of hydroxyallysine-derived cross-links. The occurrence of these cross-links appears to be an important criterion in assessing the irreversibility of fibrosis. We hypothesise that increased hydroxyallysine cross-linking results in a...

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are believed to be pivotal enzymes in the invasion of articular cartilage by synovial tissue in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Here, we investigated the effects of gene transfer of tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMPs) on the invasiveness of RA synovial fibroblasts (RASF) in vitro and in vivo. Adenoviral...

The hallmark of fibrotic processes is an excessive accumulation of collagen. The deposited collagen shows an increase in pyridinoline cross-links, which are derived from hydroxylated lysine residues within the telopeptides. This change in cross-linking is related to irreversible accumulation of collagen in fibrotic tissues. The increase in...
