Interleukin-17 of osteoblasts and hematopoietic cells primed with

Interleukin-17 and TH-17 are cytokines that are salient in autoimmunity
and in inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. The cytokine IL-17
is produced by T-cells in synovium, IL-17A levels are abundant in the synovial tissue
of RA patients in comparison to those with osteoarthritis. The immunological
capacity of IL-17 is unveiled by mouse models like the serum transfer model, using
K/BxN mice it was shown that monoclonal anti-IL-17 would retard the development
of RA in Mice, this study also foregrounds the role of TH17 cells (characterized
by their production of Interleukin-17) in Arthritis; various antibiotics such
as vancomycin would slow the development of Arthritis by obstructing TH17-inhibiting
the formation of IL-17. Another notable arthritis model using mice is the effects
of IL-17 in Collagen-induced Arthritis (CIA) whereby it was revealed that IL-17
aggravates CIA and leads to bone resorption which Is mediated by TH17 cells
through maintenance of RANKL-mediated osteoclastogenises.  , in the same model it was shown that CIA could
be suppressed using a soluble IL-17 receptor protein which would hinder the
IL-17 from taking effect.


The research is supplemented by human data in that IL-17 is seen to have
an impact on Rheumatoid Arthritis by modulating the level of bone depletion through
osteoclastic activity, such activity is highlighted in an in vitro model study. Emphasis of the IL-17 dependence in
osteoclastogenises of RA patients was reported in a coculture system of
osteoblasts and hematopoietic cells primed with synovial IL-17 drawn from RA patients
which led to an increased level of IL-17 dependent-osteoclastogenises, which is
regulated through RANKL expression. Many monoclonal antibodies were trialed to
block the activity of the IL-17A, notably Brodalumab, which is an antibody that
directly binds to the IL-17A, however this was shown to be beneficial for Psoriasis
patients and its effect on RA was not confirmed.

Other studies carried out revealed that IL-17 would stimulate chemokines
namely IL-CXCL1 and IL-CCL7, such chemokines stimulate and move Neutrophils,
Macrophages and Lymphocytes to the Synovial tissue of RA patients which would
result in worsened inflammation and lead to acute joint damage (Shabgah et al. 2014)
Similarly to # et al 2016, in their investigation on 40 RA patients Al-Sadaany
et al (2016) found a strong interdependence between TH17 cells and serum levels
of IL-17 and together they were in proportion to disease activity.


Also in their investigation Kotake et alIL-17 stimulates the expression
of the ODF gene which is seen to induce osteoclast differentiation by binding to
ODF receptors present in osteoclast progenitors.
