Evidences point that complement activation plays a role in rheumatoid arthritis RA. In this context, expression of the CReg was investigated on white cells from peripheral blood of 30 RA patients and 30 healthy controls. Using flow cytometric analyses the relative fluorescence intensities MFI of Cregs were determined. CD59 MFI was significantly increased in RA cells comparing to controls, respectively: lymphocytes 36.8 versus 27.07; monocytes 32.0 versus 21.37; and granulocytes: 84.6 versus 66.1 p
