Abstract

E-selectin grade of staining was higher in those patients with a shorter disease duration compared to longstanding synovitic specimens, as well as ICAM-1 expression. On the contrary a higher VCAM-1 positivity was mainly found in patients with longstanding psoriatic arthritis . Anti-TNFalpha positivity was found almost in all the specimens with no difference among the two groups, while the intensity of anti-TNFbeta positivity was globally higher in longstanding cases. Different adhesion molecules may separately participate to the synovitic process in the different phases of PsA, leading to the hypothesis of their different involvement during the disease evolution. Moreover the upregulation of TNFalpha and TNFbeta gives evidence to their local proinflammatory effect within the synovium and to their role in perpetuating the psoriatic arthritis synovitis.
