Summary Objective Synovitis associated with osteoarthritis (OA) is directly responsible for several clinical symptoms and reflects OA's structural progression. This study sought to analyze the expression of proinflammatory mediations, including Interleukin (IL)-17 and IL-22, which play key roles in regulating inflammatory processes, in inflamed and non-inflamed areas of osteoarthritic synovium. Methods Synovium from knees of 32 OA patients were collected at surgery. Macroscopic evaluation of inflammation enabled inflamed and non-inflamed areas to be separated. Samples were incubated to obtain tissue-conditioned media. Quantitative mRNA expression of proinflammatory mediators was analyzed by RT-PCR and protein levels by ELISA and gelatin zymography. Immunohistochemistry and histology were performed. Results Inflamed synovium were characterized by increased leukocyte infiltration and a higher vessel-to-tissue area ratio than non-inflamed tissues. Macrophages, T and B lymphocytes, and some neutrophils were found only in the inflamed tissue, and only in the subintimal layer. Levels of proinflammatory cytokines and MMP-9 were significantly higher in tissue-conditioned media from inflamed than non-inflamed tissues. Inflamed areas were associated with higher expression of IL-17 and IL-22, both correlated with the combined release of IL-6, IL-23, and TGFβ 1 . Conclusion Our results showed that inflammatory cytokines, including IL-17 and IL-22, are expressed at higher levels by inflamed OA synovium and suggest IL-22 involvement in OA pathophysiology. This study will help identify new therapeutic strategies for OA, especially the targeting of IL-22 to decrease inflammation.

Objective The infrapatellar fat pad (IFP) of the knee joint has an inflammatory phenotype in osteoarthritis (OA). Its close proximity to the synovial membrane suggests that the IFP could be involved in the induction of OA synovitis. This study was undertaken to investigate the response of fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) to autologous IFP and subcutaneous adipose tissue (SCAT) from patients with severe knee OA. Methods Samples of IFP, SCAT, and autologous synovial membrane tissue close to the ...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease and is a major cause of joint pain and disability in the aging population (1). OA is a degenerative disease associated with an abnormal remodeling of joint tissues principally driven by a host of inflammatory mediators within the affected joint (2). Its etiology is multifactorial (i.e., age, obesity, joint injury, genetic predisposition), and the pathophysiologic process affects the entire joint (articular cartilage, subchondral bone, synovial...

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and a major cause of pain and disability in elders. It is characterised by cartilage loss and structural changes in the whole joint. Although some mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of OA are more and more understood, several factors involved in the onset and progression of the disease remain elusive. Together with aging and genetic factors, obesity is an important risk factor for OA.1 Recent data suggest a clear role of systemic infl...

Introduction Visfatin is an adipokine that may be involved in intertissular joint communication in osteoarthritis (OA). With a homodimeric conformation, it exerts nicotinamide phosphoribosyltransferase (Nampt) enzymatic activity, essential for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide biosynthesis. We examined the tissular origin and conformation of visfatin/Nampt in human OA joints and investigated the role of visfatin/Nampt in chondrocytes and osteoblasts by studying Nampt enzymatic activity.

Objectives. Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) are crucial players in the pathogenesis of synovitis in rheumatic diseases. Targeting FLS activation represents an approach to the development of therapeutic strategies. Our aim was to investigate whether the microenvironment of inflamed joints could modulate the expression of IL-22 and IL-22R1 on OA and RA FLSs. We also examined the effect of IL-22 on FLS activation as well as on their IL-17-related responses. Methods. IL-22 and IL-22R1 expression...

Summary Objective Post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA) occurs after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. PTOA may be initiated by early expression of proteolytic enzymes capable of causing degradation of the articular cartilage at time of injury. This study investigated the production of three of these key proteases in multiple joint tissues after ACL injury and subsequent markers of cartilage turnover. Methods ACL transection was performed in adolescent minipigs. Collagenase (MMP-1 and MMP-...

Background Interleukin (IL)-17A and Th17 cells are critically involved in T cell-mediated synovial inflammation. Besides IL-17A, Th17 cells produce IL-22. Recently, Th22 cells were discovered, which produce IL-22 in the absence of IL-17. However, it remains unclear whether IL-22 and Th22 cells contribute to T cell-mediated synovial inflammation. Therefore, we examined the potential of IL-22 and Th22 cells to induce synovial inflammation and whether IL-22 is required for T cell-mediated experimen...

Increased interleukin (IL)-17A has been identified in joints affected by osteoarthritis (OA), but it is unclear how IL-17A, and its family members IL-17AF and IL-17F, can contribute to human OA pathophysiology. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the gene expression and signalling pathway activation effects of the different IL-17 family members in chondrocytes and synovial fibroblasts derived from cartilage and synovium of patients with end-stage knee OA. Immunohistochemistry staining confirmed that...

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to identify osteoarthritis (OA) related genes based on microarray data in synovium with a more robust integrative analysis method. METHODS Four series GSE55457, GSE12021, GSE55235, and GSE55584 (36 OA and 29 normal samples) were downloaded from the Gene Expression Omnibus database. Differentially expressed genes (DEGs) of GSE55457, GSE12021, and GSE55235 were identified using the LIMMA package. Overlapping DEGs from the intersection of the three series were detected. S...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most prevalent degenerative joint diseases that affects millions of individuals worldwide. During OA, proinflammatory factors (including IL-1, IL-6, IL-17 and TNF-α) are released from chondrocytes and proliferating synoviocytes potentiate the proinflammatory microenvironment of the synovial fluid (SF). The altered SF microenvironment affects the infiltration, polarization and apoptosis of macrophages, though the underlying mechanisms are not completely understood...

A joint is the point of connection between two bones in our body. Inflammation of the joint leads to several diseases, including osteoarthritis, which is the concern of this review. Osteoarthritis is a common chronic debilitating joint disease mainly affecting the elderly. Several studies showed that inflammation triggered by factors like biomechanical stress is involved in the development of osteoarthritis. This stimulates the release of early-stage inflammatory cytokines like interleukin-1 bet...
