  1. DCs, dendritic cells; FLS, fibroblast-like synoviocyte; OA, osteoarthritis; RA, rheumatoid arthritis. aRA FLS 2–14 was used for this experiment. Values were obtained from one (OA 2–43) of three OA FLSs. bThis result was based on single experiments performed in triplicates, being similar to the cases performed with additional FLSs.
