Rheumatoid synovial cells in culture produce a growth inhibitor.
  1. C A Smith


    Cultures of synovial cells obtained at surgery from patients with rheumatoid arthritis produced a protein which inhibits the mitosis of normal rabbit and human synovial cells, and of human lung fibroblasts. This mitotic inhibitory effect can be transferred to rabbit synovial cells by intra-articular injection of the animals with rheumatoid synovial cell cultures.
