Conditions septic arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis
Treatment articular punction, salivary samples, blood sample
Sponsor University Hospital, Montpellier
Start date April 2015
End date April 2017
Trial size 30 participants
Trial identifier NCT02505828, 2014-A01561-46, 93612


The aim of this study is to find markers that could differentiate infectious and inflammatory arthritis. The investigators want to find markers by differential analysis by compare synovial fluids of septic and inflammatory arthritis. The investigators will use for this analysis, proteomics, cytokine dosage and monocyte typing by flow cytometry analysis. The investigators will use one marker or a score with biological and clinical data to discriminate arthritis of infectious and inflammatory etiology.
