STAT3 mRNA expression was upregulated, while SOCS3 mRNA expression was downregulated on monocytes from LSC-PTB patients. The relative mRNA expression of STAT1 (a), STAT3 (b), STAT4 (c), STAT5A (d), STAT5B (e), STAT6 (f), SOCS1 (g), SOCS2 (h) and SOCS3 (i) on sorted CD14+ monocyte among LCS-PTB patients, N-PTB patients and HV groups were detected by qRT-PCR. Data were presented as mean ± SEM. *P < 0.05; **P < 0.01; ***P < 0.001
