• inflammatory
  • Background Manual outlining of the synovial membrane on MR images in inflammatory joint diseases is too time consuming for clinical use. (bmj.com)
  • Objectives The purpose was to introduce a less time-consuming stereologic method for measuring synovial volume by MRI in inflammatory joint diseases. (bmj.com)
  • Objectives To identify the differentially expressed genes between the inflammatory (I) and normal/reactive (N/R) synovial areas using a unique ex vivo culture model and to investigate the genetic modulatory effects of CS in this model. (bmj.com)
  • Conclusions Our work demonstrates the differential gene expression profile between paired inflammatory and normal/reactive areas of synovial membrane as well as the modulatory effects of CS on gene expression in the inflammatory areas, especially regarding genes involved in both angiogenesis and cell migration.

  • passes
  • Between these, the synovial membrane passes in front of the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments, why these ligaments are both intracapsular and extra-articular with their tibial attachment located exactly on the cartilage margin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Methods
  • Methods 42 patients with newly diagnosed untreated JIA underwent synovial biopsy before the administration of steroids or disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. (bmj.com)
  • found
  • A significant correlation between manual and stereologic estimations of synovial volumes was found (Spearman rho = 0.71, P = 0.002). (bmj.com)
  • body
  • The elbow joint is the synovial hinge joint between the humerus in the upper arm and the radius and ulna in the forearm which allows the forearm and hand to be moved towards and away from the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • If the leakage is too great, or the synovial membrane is damaged too severely, the cartilage in the joint may not receive an adequate supply of blood and other nutrients. (wisegeekhealth.com)
  • The tendon invaginates the synovial sheath from one side so that the tendon is suspended from the membrane by the mesotendon, through which the blood vessels reach the tendon, in places where the range of movement is extensive. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Double-staining techniques with mouse monoclonal antibodies against cell subset markers in five RA synovial membranes showed that up to 13% of T-cells and 19% of antibody-producing cells stained for IL-6. (ox.ac.uk)
  • areas
  • The synovial membrane was dissected and SC from N/R and I areas cultured separately for a period of 7 days with or without highly purified bovine CS (200 µg/ml, Bioibérica S.A., Barcelona, Spain). (bmj.com)
  • bands
  • These two bands are separated by a thinner intermediate part and their distal attachments are united by a transverse band below which the synovial membrane protrudes during joint movements. (wikipedia.org)
  • provide
  • Conclusion Stereologic volume estimation can provide measures of synovial volumes comparable to the manual outlining method and is less time-consuming. (bmj.com)
  • Immunohistological examination of synovial membrane biopsies may provide further insight into early disease processes in JIA. (bmj.com)
  • study
  • This study of the synovial membrane characterises the immunohistochemical features in early untreated, newly diagnosed JIA and compares findings with disease subgroup at 2 years. (bmj.com)
