Table 2 HO-1 mRNA expression in patients with BD

From: Association of reduced heme oxygenase-1 with excessive Toll-like receptor 4 expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells in Behçet's disease

  PBMCs/PMNs Ocular involvement HLA-B51
   - (n = 17) + (n = 16) - (n = 10) + (n = 14)
HO-1 (AU) PBMCs 7.7 ± 3.1 5.7 ± 4.1 8.1 ± 3.9 5.6 ± 3.7
  PMNs 32.9 ± 46.1 31.6 ± 34.1 31.6 ± 38.0 19.9 ± 18.0
  1. Values are expressed as mean ± standard deviation. AU, arbitrary unit; BD, Behçet's disease; HLA, human leukocyte antigen; HO, heme oxygenase; PBMC, peripheral blood mononuclear cells; PMN, peripheral blood multinuclear cells.
