RANK, RANKL and osteoprotegerin in arthritic bone loss

RANK, RANKL and osteoprotegerin in arthritic bone loss

Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research 38(2): 161-170

Rheumatoid arthritis is characterized by the presence of inflammatory synovitis and destruction of joint cartilage and bone. Tissue proteinases released by synovia, chondrocytes and pannus can cause cartilage destruction and cytokine-activated osteoclasts have been implicated in bone erosions.
