Le rôle des cellules myéloïdes et microARNs dans l'arthrite juvénile

Abstract : Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is a heterogeneous group of chronic inflammatory rheumatism affecting children under 16 years of age. This inflammatory disorder of unknown origin is characterized by arthritis lasting more than 6 weeks in the absence of treatments.In order to highlight mechanisms involved in the pathophysiology of JIA, an inclusion of patients suffering from septic arthritis, another form of juvenile arthritis, was performed. In parallel, comparative studies between the peripheral blood (PB) and the synovial fluid (SF) of patients with JIA were carried out in order to search for mechanisms specific of joint disturbances.We focused on monocytes and dendritic cells (DCs) subsets as well as the expression patterns of microRNAs (miRNAs) in the PB and SF of patients. These different biological markers are known to play a major role both in the regulation of inflammation and the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases.Analysis of miRNA expression by a high-throughput sequencing approach followed by RT-qPCR validation revealed specifically deregulated miRNAs in JIA compared to AS. In addition, the phenotypic characterization of myeloid cell subpopulations showed an accumulation and activation profile specific of JIA cells. Overall, this project allowed me to identify different cellular and molecular actors that might be involved in the pathophysiology of JIA.
