Table 2 Microparticle numbers in synovial fluid from patients with arthritic joints

From: Synovial microparticles from arthritic patients modulate chemokine and cytokine release by synoviocytes

Origin mAb Synovial fluid
CD4+ cells CD4 191 (<10–711)
CD8+ cells CD8 <10 (<10–331)
Monocytic cells CD14 1,315 (57–13,326)
B-cells CD20 <10 (<10–104)
Platelets CD61 <10 (<10–17)
Erythrocytes Glycophorin A <10 (<10–3,104)
Granulocytes CD66e 2,380 (<10–20,864)
  1. Results are medians, with ranges in parentheses. Data are the numbers (× 106/l) of marker-positive microparticles from all arthritic patients (n = 11).
