The arthritogenicity of bacterial structures depends on bacterial species, and remarkably, even bacteria from the normal intestinal microbiota cause experimental arthritis in animals [17].
The arthritogenicity of chlorinated-CII versus native CII (Cl-CII) was also demonstrated in a rat strain [159, 206, 207].
Is it the specificity of the target antigen, the quantity, and diversity of the response, and/or merely the binding affinity to available targets in the arthritic joint, which are important in determining arthritogenicity and clinical disease progression [211]?
