Results of a multiplex cytokines/chemokine bead assay using serum obtained at diagnosis from patients with Takayasu arteritis (TAK) with disease onset over 40 years of age (TAK >40, n = 10) and age at disease onset of 40 years or younger (TAK ≤40, n = 14). Serum from healthy donors (HD) older than 40 years (HD >40) and from HD 40 years of age or younger (HD ≤40) were compared to serum from the TAK >40 and TAK ≤40 groups. Symbols represent individual patients or donors. Horizontal lines show the median and interquartile range. IFN-γ interferon gamma, IL interleukin, GM-CSF granulocyte macrophage colony-stimulating factor, TNF-α tumor necrosis factor-α, RANTES regulated on activation normal T cell expressed and secreted, N.S. not significant
