The arginase-1 levels of the 88 DF patients. The levels of the L-arginine metabolic products arginase-1 and nitric oxide (NO) were tested in the 88 of the 178 DF patients. We found (a) a significant increase of arginase-1 level in the PBMCs of the DF patients compared with those of the healthy controls and (b) a good correlation of the arginase-1 level with MDSC frequency in the 88 DF patients (rho = 0.265, p = .024). The correlation was evaluated by Spearman’s analysis and data represent the median with interquartile range. **-p < .001
