Figure 2

Pattern of cytokine mRNA expression among participants segregated according to QFT-GIT and TST results. Data are from whole blood, showing mRNA levels, assessed by qRT-PCR, normalized and expressed relative to the housekeeping gene, human acidic ribosomal protein (HuPo) as fold values. Each point represents the mean of duplicate experiments from a single individual. In both figures, horizontal lines indicate medians and *shows a p-value = 0.0237, ** shows p-values = 0.0035 and 0.0027 for Figure A and B, respectively and *** shows a p-value < 0.0001.
