  1. Cytokine levels were determined in culture supernatants of IDC (to evaluate the APC influence on immune response in resting conditions) and of DC (to evaluate the APC influence on immune response in activation conditions). The levels are expressed as mean (or median) ± standard error, as appropriate. Statistical differences between groups were determined using the Mann–Whitney U-test or Student’s t-test as appropriate: aa p = 0.008; bb p < 0.0001; cc p = 0.03; dd p = 0.006; ee p = 0.004; ff p < 0.0001; gg p = 0.0007; hh p < 0.0001; ii p = 0.001; ll p = 0.013; mm p = 0.006; nn p = 0.001; pp p = 0.001; qq p = 0.001; rr p = 0.001.
