High LDL-C levels attenuate onset of inflammation and cartilage destruction in antigen-induced arthritis.

Source :

OBJECTIVES:In this study, we used hypercholesterolaemic apolipoprotein E-deficient (Apoe-/-) mice to investigate LDL/oxLDL effect on synovial inflammation and cartilage destruction during antigen-induced arthritis (AIA). Further, as macrophage FcγRs are crucial to immune complex-mediated AIA, we investigated in vitro the effects of high cholesterol levels on the expression of FcγRs on macrophages.
