This study aims to investigate the role of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) expression level in drug resistance to disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs in refractory rheumatoid arthritis (RRA). We evaluated and compared the expression levels of P-gp in fibroblast-like synoviocyte (FLS) cells in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA), and investigated the potential mechanism of P-gp-induced multidrug resistance in RRA. Ten patients were enrolled and divided into two groups: six in the RA group and four in the OA group.
