Table 5 Correlation between serum levels of sTNFR and levels released by isolated T cells

From: Polymorphism in the tumour necrosis factor receptor II gene is associated with circulating levels of soluble tumour necrosis factor receptors in rheumatoid arthritis

Serum levels Unstimulated T cells Stimulated T cells
  sTNF-RI sTNF-RII sTNF-RI sTNF-RII
sTNF-RI 0.883 0.818 0.858 0.692
sTNF-RII 0.865 0.923 0.837 0.763
  1. Shown is the correlation between serum levels of soluble tumour necrosis factor receptor (sTNFR) and levels released by isolated T cells from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients (n = 58). Spearman correlation coefficients are shown. P < 0.0001 for all correlations. sTNF-RI, soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor I; sTNF-RII, soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor II.
