Ratio of technetium-99m pertechnetate uptake six and 24 hours after a single injection of IL1β or IL17

6 Hours 24 Hours
IL1β (10 ng/knee)1.001 (0.147)1.098 (0.114)
IL17 (10 ng/knee)0.996 (0.120)1.013 (0.117)
  • Ratios between experimental and control knee counts, are given as means (SD), (IL1β n=9, IL17 n=10). No significant difference between IL1β and IL17 using an unpaired ttest.
