CD200-Fc, a novel antiarthritic biologic agent that targets proinflammatory cytokine expression in the joints of mice with collagen-induced arthritis.
OBJECTIVE: The CD200 receptor (CD200R) is an inhibitory receptor expressed by myeloid cells that is postulated to play an important role in regulation of the immune system. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a soluble ligand of CD200R in established collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) in mice and to analyze changes in cytokine expression following therapy in order to understand its primary mechanism of action. METHODS: Arthritis was induced in DBA/1 mice, and CD200-Fc fus...Expand abstract
