Expression of TNF and IL-10 is increased in cutaneous and mucosal lesions of ATL patients. Fragments of cutaneous (CL, A and
C), mucosal (ML, B and
D), and healthy tissues (Control) were included in paraffin and sections were submitted to IHC for TNF (A and
B) and IL-10 (C and
D). After reaction, the expression of cytokines was determined through quantification of positive cells, under light microscopy (400×). Data represent individual and median values. TNF CL, n = 21; Control CL, n = 8. IL-10 CL, n = 23; Control CL, n = 8. TNF ML, n = 9; Control ML, n = 7. IL-10 ML and Control, n = 8. p < 0.05.
