  1. Rats were immunized subcutaneously with 0.5 g of methylated bovine serum albumin (mBSA) emulsified with complete Freund's adjuvant 21 and 14 days prior to articular injection (day 0) of 0.5 mg of mBSA (sensitized) or 50 μL of saline (contralateral) into the knee joints. Expression of mRNA was assessed before (on day 0) and after (at 7 hours and on days 1, 2, 3, 7, and 14) sensitization. Data are expressed as delta delta threshold cycle (Ct) related to the housekeeping gene (RP29). Values are the mean ± standard error of the mean of five independent measurements per time. aP < 0.05 in comparison with day 0. IL, interleukin; MCP-1, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1; TNF-α, tumor necrosis factor-alpha; VEGF, vascular endothelial cell growth factor.
