  • These data may help explain the contradictory findings regarding the effects of IFN-γ as an inhibitor of osteoclastogenesis, and also suggest a model of erosive disease in the presence of IFN-γ whereby osteoclast precursors are exposed to RANKL before they enter the IFN-γ-rich environment.

  • We next investigated whether other IFN-γ effects besides osteoclast inhibition were blunted in RANKL-pretreated cells.

A link between activated T cells and osteoclast inhibition by IFN-γ has been highlighted in a report by Takayanagi et al ., providing the first in vivo evidence that the immune system may influence osteoclastogenesis [ 38 ] .
