Table 3 Correlations between cytokines expressed in cutaneous and mucosal lesions detected as protein and mRNA a

From: Interleukin 32γ (IL-32γ) is highly expressed in cutaneous and mucosal lesions of American Tegumentary Leishmaniasis patients: association with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and IL-10

  1. aIL-32, TNF and IL-10 proteins were detected by IHC and IL-32γ, TNF and IL-10 mRNA were detected by qPCR, in biopsy fragments of lesions from bCutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) and cMucosal leishmaniasis (ML) patients. n = number of samples; r = Spearman´s correlation test. *p < 0.05.
