Figure 2

IFN-γ levels are relatively constant when evaluated in two different periods. Unstimulated cultures supernatants of PBMC from 11 HAM/TSP patients and 14 asymptomatic carriers were assayed by ELISA and analyzed at the initial evaluation and eight months following the first evaluation. The data represent IFN-γ levels (pg/ml) of each patient in first and second evaluation. The differences were not statistically significant (p > 0.05, Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed ranks test).
