Main tasks:

    • assessing immunological parameters characteristic for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis in the undifferentiated arthritis phase
    • the mechanisms of dysregulated production of key maturation modulators and modulators of the activation of osteoclasts taking part in bone destruction
    • immunomodulatory and regenerative characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) of the adipose tissue in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
    • quantitative and functional disorders of regulatory lymphocytes in patients with rheumatoid arthritis
    • the impact of the articular and extra-articular adipose tissue on autoimmune disorders in rheumatoid arthritis
    • studying synovial cells of the fibroblast type and their role in the destruction of joint structures
    • the participation of the bone marrow in the initiation and maintenance of chronic inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis
    • disorders of the production of cytokines and their impact on the activation of cells of the immune system and beyond
    • immunosuppressive characteristics of taurine chloramine
    • immunological mechanisms related to arthritis occurring together with other diseases (nonspecific enteritis, sarcoidosis)
    • looking for non-invasive diagnostic methods useful in the early diagnosis of enteritis in the course of spondyloarthropathy
    • immunological disorders in the Sjögren-syndrome
    • immunological disorders in the mixed connective tissue disease
  • Grants of the past 5 years
  • Ongoing:
    • 2017-2019 Functional characteristics of mesenchymal stem cells derived from the adipose tissue of patients suffering from rheumatic diseases in terms of their therapeutic use. OPUS 11, National Scientific Center (Project Manager dr hab. n. med. prof. nadzw. Ewa Kontny)

  • Finished:
    • 2012 – 2017 The contribution of bone marrow with particular emphasis on the population of cells producing Il-17 to the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis. National Scientific Center (Project Manager dr n. med. Ewa Kuca-Warnawin)
    • 2013-2016 The influence of B-lymphocytes on the clinical picture of the primary Sjögren syndrome – an immunohistochemical and serological evaluation as well as an evaluation of cytokine profiles regulating the activity of these cells. National Scientific Center (Project Manager lek. Maria Maślińska, scientific supervisor of the project dr hab. n. med. prof. nadzw. Ewa Kontny)
    • 2013-2016 Determination of the profile of cytokines related to arthritis in the course of nonspecific enteritis. National Scientific Center (Project Manager lek. Joanna Dmowska-Chalaba, scientific supervisor of the project dr hab. n. med. prof. nadzw. Ewa Kontny)
