...y cytokines were produced in primary cartilage and synovial
cells from arthritic versus normal joints. While OA cells did not differ from controls, primary RA cells produced TNF-a, IL-1 and IL-6 at levels 2- to 4-fold above controls. Importantly, this effect could be replicated in normal cells when they wer...
