Table 2 Protein levels of chemokines in plasma and synovial fluid measured in 14 patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis and 14 age matched healthy control children

From: Expression of the inflammatory chemokines CCL5, CCL3 and CXCL10 in juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and demonstration of CCL5 production by an atypical subset of CD8+ T cells
