Analysis of synovial tissue mRNA expression of IL-23 (a), IL-6 (b) and TNF-α (c) by quantitative PCR in the cohort 1 of RA. Analysis with ectopic lymphoid neogenesis (ELN) based on the histology. Correlation of mRNA expression of CD21L (molecular marker of ELN) with expression of IL-23 in the three RA cohorts (d-f). CD21L CD21 long isoform, IL interleukin, mRNA messenger ribonucleic acid, PCR polymerase chain reaction, RA rheumatoid arthritis, TNF-α tumor necrosis factor alpha
