Figure 2

Severity of collagen-induced arthritis is increased in mice deficient in collagen type IX. The figure shows a comparison of arthritis development between littermate females of C9T-DQ from the intercrossed DBA/1 line, as in Table 1. Mean scores were calculated on arthritic animals. An asterisk indicates a significant difference (p < 0.05) between the homozygous group and the control groups (heterozygous and wild types).
