Rheumatoid arthritis synovial T cells regulate transcription of several genes associated with antigen-induced anergy.
Figure 4. Synovial fluid CPPD crystals (compensated polarized light microscopy x400 ); scant numbers of rhomboid crystals showing weak positive birefringence.
My group has recently identified IL-6, which is produced by synovial fibroblasts, as a major anti-apoptotic factor in the rheumatoid joint.
Finally, we previously reported a role for A-SAA in matrix degradation through the production of metalloproteinases from RA synovial fibroblasts in vitro.
In this normal hand the small amounts of MCP joint synovial fluid can be seen.
The bearing surface of all synovial joints is made up of a very specialized material called hyaline cartilage.
This compares with a 96% improvement following surgical division of the synovial plica.
Sherman described a set of criteria for the diagnosis of pathological synovial plicae.
Therefore, in spite of the variable proportions of each component, our results confirm that the synovial sarcoma is of monoclonal origin.
A small synovial sheath is present around each individual tendon at the wrist but not in the hand or the fingers.
cervical spondylitis is inflammation of the synovial joints between the cervical vertebrae.
Inflammation of the synovial sheath is called synovitis, while inflammation of the sheath and tendon together is called tenosynovitis.
In similar way, synovial tumors such as lipoma, pedunculated fibromas intra-articular xanthomas and areas of pigmented villo-nodular synovitis may arthroscopically excised.
galle, Sp. agalla, a wind-gall or puffy distension of the synovial bursa on the fetlock joint of a horse, is derived from the Lat.
Cervical spondylitis is inflammation of the synovial joints between the cervical vertebrae.

Synovitis-Inflammation of the synovial membrane, the membrane that lines the inside of the articular capsule of a joint.
Some joints (synovial joints) allow for movement between the bones being joined (called articulating bones).
The simplest model of a synovial joint involves two bones, separated by a slight gap called the joint cavity.
The articular capsule has two components: the fibrous membrane on the outside and the synovial membrane (or synovium) on the inside.
The synovial membrane has special cells and many capillaries (tiny blood vessels).
This membrane produces a supply of synovial fluid which fills the joint cavity, lubricates it, and helps the articular bones move smoothly about the joint.
In JA, the synovial membrane becomes intensely inflamed.
Synovial joint-A fully moveable joint in which a synovial cavity is present between two articulating bones.
Synovial membrane-The membrane that lines the inside of the articular capsule of a joint, and produces a lubricating fluid called synovial fluid.
