Abstract

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that primarily affects joints. In rheumatoid joints there is extensive synovial proliferation with diseased synovium becoming highly aggressive, attaching to the articular cartilage and bone to form what is termed a pannus. The formation of active pannus is central to erosive disease and resulting joint destruction. In this study, we examined the ability to eliminate the hyperplastic synovium by adenoviral-mediated gene transfer of human TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL), a member of the TNF family that is able to induce apoptosis through interaction with receptors containing death domains, DR4 and DR5. Infection of synovial cells derived from RA patients with Ad.TRAIL resulted in significant apoptosis in three out of five lines. Moreover, primary rabbit synovial fibroblasts were also sensitive to Ad.TRAIL-mediated gene transfer. In a rabbit model of arthritis, intra-articular gene transfer of TRAIL induced apoptosis in cells within the synovial lining, reduced leukocytic infiltration and stimulated new matrix synthesis by cartilage. These results demonstrate that TRAIL can affect the viability of the cells populating the activated synovium in arthritic joints and suggest that the delivery of TRAIL to arthritic joints may represent a non-invasive mechanism for inducing pannus regression.
