IL-1F8 protein levels were determined using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. aP < 0.05 versus osteoparthritis (OA), as assessed using the Mann-Whitney test. bCollagen-induced arthritis (CIA) early: days 1–7 after the onset of arthritis; CIA late: days 8–21 after onset of arthritis. cP < 0.05 versus late CIA, as assessed using analysis of variance. dP < 0.05 versus control, as assessed using analysis of variance.
