Cytokine levels in different malarial subgroups. Levels of log10-transformed (ng/mL of plasma) IL-17 (a) and IP-10 (b) were measured and plotted according to groups. Horizontal bars indicate the median. Black dots represent patients with ARF (a and b). Correlations between these two cytokines for SNCM, MOD, and CM-MOD patients with ARF are represented in (c). Data were analyzed using the Spearman correlation test. p values ≤0.05 were considered as significant. d. Relationship between levels of IL-17 and IL-12p40 among patients developing ARF.Levels of IL-17 and IL-12p40 were plotted for ARF patients from SNCM, MOD and CM-MOD groups. Data were analyzed using the Spearman correlation test. p ≤ 0.05 was considered as significant
