An animal model of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Two weeks after primary immunization, mice with collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) were treated with 20 mg ThiaMet-G via intraperitoneal injection every other day for 20 days. Mice were then sacrificed and immune cells isolated from the spleen; T cells were then isolated and analyzed using fluorescence-activated cell sorting. a ThiaMet-G significantly aggravated the severity of arthritis in treated compared to untreated mice with CIA. b Histopathological evaluation of joint sections revealed that synovial proliferation and bone destruction, but not inflammatory cell infiltration, were more severe in mice with CIA treated with ThiaMet-G than in untreated mice (original magnification × 100). c ThiaMet-G significantly increased the numbers of CD4+ IFN-γ+ T cells (8.5 % vs 6.8 %) and CD4+ IL-17+ T cells (17.0 % vs 14.3 %), but not CD4+ IL-4+ T cells or CD4+ FoxP3+ T cells, in treated mice with CIA compared to untreated controls, respectively (*P <0.05)
