1976 Recipients of
AOTT Arthritis

Research Grants

A large percentage of Americans, especially among those

\ over sixty, suffer f r o m pain and incapacity caused by arthritis.
Despite the variety o f possible causes, the result of all forms
of arthritis is the eventual destruction o f a component o f the
I cartilage tissue called proteoglycan. The proteoglycans are

responsible f o r the unique mechanical properties of this tissue
providing a smooth gliding surface for the movement of
opposing bones. Unfortunately nothing is known of the way
the body naturally metablizes cartilage proteoglycans or how
this relates to the excessive degradation seen in the process
of arthritis.

Janet H . Glaser, Ph.D., one of the A O I I Arthritis Research
Grant Recipients, is directing her research toward investi-
gating the enzyme activities which may be involved in the
destruction of cartilage tissues. Cartilage cells isolated f r o m
chick embryo limbs are grown in tissue culture. By using
radioactive isotopes both the synthesis and degradation of
proteoglycans can be monitored. Intermediates in the process
are then isolated, and we begin to build up clues as to the

Dr. Glaser is conducting her research at the University o f
Illinois at Urbana, where she is a Research Associate with
the Department of Biochemistry.

Jane M . Siegel, Ph.D.. recipient of one of the 1976
A O I I Arthritis Research Grants, is investigating the factors
which predispose to the development of autoimmune and
rheumatoid diseases i n an animal model, the New Zealand
Black ( N Z B ) strain mouse.

These mice f o r m antibodies against their own tissues,
called autoantibodies. For example, autoantibody against
their own red blood cells results in a hemolytic anemia with
greatly enlarged spleen and liver. Autoantibodies directed
against nuclear components of their cells, especially against
nuclear D N A , results in the formation of immune complexes
which deposit in the blood vessels, capillaries and joints. One
serious consequence of this is kidney damage and loss of
function. This is common both to these mice and patients
with systemic lupus erythematosus. The formation of similar
antigen-antibody complexes in the joints also triggers the
painful inflammatory reactions characteristic of arthritis.

Dr. Siegel h ' 3 recently received an appointment as Assis-
tant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Immunology,
Allergy and Rheumatology, University of Oregon Medical
School, Portland, where she is carrying out these studies.

Elizabeth Semon Bonczar, Epsilon
Alpha, has become the first woman
to receive her Ph.D. in mineral eco-
