Summary of "Correlation between Relative Expression of IL 17 and PERP in Rheumatoid Arthritis Patients and Disease Activity."

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder. Decreased apoptosis is considered an important leading cause of autoimmune diseases. As IL17 and PERP can affect apoptosis process, they may contribute the pathogenesis and activity of RA. Objectives of this study were to investigate the possible correlation of IL 17 and PERP levels with RA pathogenesis and activity. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were isolated from fifty RA patients and fifty healthy subjects, RNA was extracted and subjected to real time PCR to detect the relative expression of IL17 and PERP. Results were correlated with RA disease activity parameters. Increased IL17 and decreased PERP mRNA expression levels were detected in patients as compared to the healthy controls (P˂0.001) and they were positively and inversely correlated with disease activity score for 28 joints (DAS28), C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and rheumatoid factor (RF). A significant negative correlation between PERP and IL-17 mRNA expression levels was found (P ˂0.001). In conclusion, increased level of IL 17 and decreased level of PERP may constitute two major factors in the pathogenesis and activity of RA.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Arthritis in children, with onset before 16 years of age. The terms juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) and juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) refer to classification systems for chronic arthritis in children. Only one subtype of juvenile arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

Antibodies found in adult RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS patients that are directed against GAMMA-CHAIN IMMUNOGLOBULINS.

A variable mixture of the mono- and disodium salts of gold thiomalic acid used mainly for its anti-inflammatory action in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. It is most effective in active progressive rheumatoid arthritis and of little or no value in the presence of extensive deformities or in the treatment of other forms of arthritis.

Systemic-onset rheumatoid arthritis in adults. It differs from classical rheumatoid arthritis in that it is more often marked by acute febrile onset, and generalized lymphadenopathy and hepatosplenomegaly are more prominent.
