From: HMGB1/RAGE induces IL-17 expression to exaggerate inflammation in peripheral blood cells of hepatitis B patients

Fig. 2

HMGB1 treatment promotes significantly the expression of proinflammatory cytokine in peripheral blood cells of HB patients compared to healthy controls. a The mRNA expression of IL-1β, -6, -17 and TNF-α in peripheral blood cells of patients with HB and healthy controls was measured by realtime-PCR (n = 3). b The protein level of IL-1β, -6, -17 and TNF-α in peripheral blood cells of patients with HB and healthy controls was measured by ELISA. Data are presented as the mean ± SD of three independent experiments (n = 3, **P < 0.03, ***P < 0.001)
