Effect of rIFN-γ on ex-vivo IL-17 and IL-22 production. PBMCs of patients were isolated at baseline and day 1, 2, 7, 14 and 28 after rIFN-γ administration. Isolated PBMCs were stimulated for 7 days with PHA, C. albicans blastoconidia, or C. albicans hyphae. IL-17 (A) and IL-22 (B) concentrations were measured in culture supernatants. Baseline concentrations were used as control and set at 1; subsequent measurements are plotted as the mean relative fold change ± SEM. Significant change from baseline was determined by subjecting the data to Wilcoxons signed rank test. (* = p < 0.05).
