Serum B2-microglobulin concentration correlates with urinary concentrations of type 1 collagen cross-linked N-telopeptides and deoxypyridinoline in rheumatoid arthritis.

Ann Saudi Med 1998 Mar-Apr;18(2):113-6

Departments of Medicine, Rheumatology Unit, Pathology, and Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, Kuwait University, Safat, Kuwait.

Background: Determination of serum ss2-microglobulin concentration, an invasive procedure, has been advocated for monitoring patientsA centAA response to treatment in rheumatoid arthritis. The object of this study was to find out if serum ss2-microglobulin concentration correlated with urinary excretions of type 1 collagen crosslinked N-telopeptides (NTx) and deoxypyridinoline (Pyrilinks-D) in rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Subjects And Methods: Using chemiluminiscent assay, serum ss2-microglobulin concentrations were estimated in 25 female patients with active RA, 25 female with inactive disease, and 25 age-matched healthy female controls. Read More
