Circulating inflammatory cytokines alter transcriptional activity within fibrotic tissue of Dupuytren's disease patients.

J Orthop Res 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Dupuytren's disease is a benign fibroproliferative disorder of the hand that results in disabling digital contractures that impair function and diminish the quality of life. The incidence of this disease has been correlated with chronic inflammatory states, but any direct association between inflammatory cytokines and Dupuytren's disease is not known. We hypothesized that advanced fibroproliferation is associated with increased levels of circulating inflammatory cytokines. Read More
