From: Extracellular mitochondrial DNA and oxidatively damaged DNA in synovial fluid of patients with rheumatoid arthritis

Level of 8-oxodG (ng/ml) Number of patients (%) RF+ Erosive ExART LPC (×109/l)
>1.5 41 (84%) 36 (88%) 34 (83%) 13 (27%) 7.8 ± 0.4
<1.5 8 (16%) 2 (25%) 5 (63%) 2 (25%) 8.0 ± 1.3
  1. RA, rheumatoid arthritis; 8-oxodG, 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine; RF, rheumatoid factor; ExART, having extra-articular manifestations of RA; LPC, leukocyte particle count.
