Abstract
I n this study, we observed improvement in hydrarthrosis associated with osteoarthritis of the knee (OA) with celecoxib, a specific cycloxygenase (COX)-2 inhibitor therapy, and also reduction of the production of cytokines in serum and in synovial fluid. Concentrations of interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor- α (TNF- α ) in serum and synovial fluid obtained from patients with knee OA were determined by chemiluminescence-ELISA (CL-ELISA) method, the sensitivity of which is 100-1,000 times greater than that of the conventional ELISA method. The degree of improvement in knee hydroarthrosis with celecoxib therapy could be graded into 3 groups: Group A, patients in whom hydroarthrosis disappeared following within a month with celecoxib; Group B: patients in whom hydroarthrosis disappeared after treatment with celecoxib had been performed within 2 months; and Group C, where the amount of fluid was unchanged. Significant changes in serum levels of IL-6 and TNF- α before and after celecoxib therapy were seen only in Group A. In addition, significant changes in synovial fluid levels of IL-6 and TNF- α before and after celecoxib therapy were seen in Group A and Group B, but not in Group C. Evaluation of X-ray findings revealed that there was a tendency for mean IL-6 and TNF- α to decrease as the grade rated on the basis of X-ray findings became higher, and a tendency for mean IL-6 and TNF- α to increase as the grade became lower.
