Qazi Najeeb, Ruqaya Aziz


Abstract: Introduction Pain and swelling in joints is a fundamental feature of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), it is a chronic multisystem disease of unknown cause. Osteoarthritis (OA) has been characterized by progressive articular cartilage loss and osteophyte formation. Objective This study was undertaken to evaluate whether it is possible to distinguish OA from RA by comparing LDH, ALP, Uric Acid and ACP levels within the synovial fluid and the serum. Materials and Methods This was a cross sectional study, total of 317 cases were included out of which 172 cases were already diagnosed cases of having OA and 145 cases were diagnosed with RA. Joint fluid was obtained by arthrocentesis from patients with clinical evidence of knee arthritis and joint effusion, blood samples were taken from the same patients. A combination of serological and aspiration analyses was done. Results The mean levels of synovial LDH, ALP, ACP in RA patients were 474.23 83.01 mg/dL, 108.23 54.43 IU/L, 10.5 8.5 IU/L and in OA group were 311.86 153.91 mg/dL, 83.6 15.0 IU/L, 3.7 1.8 IU/L respectively, there was a statistically significant difference between them (p
