  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of interferon-gamma (IFNgamma) administration on the evolution of systemic infection and septic arthritis induced by group B streptococci (GBS) in mice [24].
  • Intravenous inoculation of CD-1 mice with 10(7) CFU of type IV group B Streptococcus (GBS) results in a high incidence of diffuse septic arthritis, associated with high levels of systemic and local production of interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) and IL-6 [25].
  • The mean values of HGF in SF were 1.21 ng/ml for patients with RA, 0.19 ng/ml for those with OA and 0.18 ng/ml for the one with septic arthritis [26].
  • Cox-2 activity is therefore associated with the genesis of infectious arthritis caused by B. burgdorferi [27].
  • Our results suggest that IL-4 and IL-4-dependent Th2 responses promote septic arthritis and sepsis-related mortality by inhibition of bacterial clearance during S. aureus infection [28].
