Comparison between cytokine production by rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Production of IFN-α (a), TNF-α (b), and IL-6 (c) by the healthy PBMCs after stimulation with exosomes from healthy controls (HC; n = 8), rheumatoid arthritis (RA; n = 8) or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE; n = 8) patients were measured. Data are presented as the median and interquartile range. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.0001. IFN interferon, IL interleukin, NS not significant, TNF tumor necrosis factor
