Inflammation and Bone Formation in Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstract

    Abstract

    The spondylarthropies are a group of arthritic diseases in which the inflammatory process is targeted to the spine and pelvis. The prototypic example of these conditions is ankylosing spondylitis (AS). In this common condition,inflammation ultimately leads to bone formation around and ultimately across affected joints, resulting in jointfusion (ankylosis). No therapies are currently available that prevent or even slow this inevitable progression that results in significant disability
