Table 1 Mean histological scores and osteoclast numbers of rats with collagen-induced arthritis

From: Inhibitory effect of ribbon-type NF-κB decoy oligodeoxynucleotides on osteoclast induction and activity in vitro and in vivo

Group Number of joints Histological score Osteoclast number
PBS injection 5 3.0 ± 0.7 142.8 ± 15.1
RSODN injection 5 3.2 ± 0.8 153.8 ± 28.2
RNODN injection 5 1.8 ± 0.8a 31.0 ± 37.3b
  1. ap < 0.01 compared with PBS injection group; bp < 0.01 compared with PBS-injection group (n = 5 rats and n = 5 joints for each group). RNODN, ribbon-type NF-κB decoy oligodeoxynucleotide; RSODN, ribbon-type scrambled decoy oligodeoxynucleotide. Results are means ± SD.
