Macrophage in Enthesis: A Likely Contributing Factor to Enthesitis through IL-23 in Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory disease that characterized by enthesitis and subsequent syndesmophytes in spinal joints and peripheral joints. However, the exact pathogenesis of AS is still unknown. Recent studies indicate that serum concentrations of interleukin-23 (IL-23) are elevated in AS and the expression of IL-23 in vivo is sufficient to phenocopy the human disease such as spondyloarthropathy (SpA), with the specific and characteristic development of enthesitis and entheseal new bone formation in the initial complete absence of synovitis.
