Effects of Emab on IL-6 and IL-10 cytokine production. Tonsillar CD10CD27 B cells were negatively selected using magnetic bead cell enrichment and then stimulated with R848 and/or F(ab′)2 anti-human IgM with or without Emab or a human IgG control. a, b Cells were treated with different stimuli and cultured for 3 days, and production of IL-6 and IL-10 in cell supernatants was quantified by ELISA. Cumulative data from nine independent experiments using CD10CD27 B cells from different donors. Experiments with increased IL-6 production in the presence of Emab are shown (gray) (a). c Correlation between TLR7 mRNA expression in donor CD10CD27 B cells at the time of activation and the levels of IL-10 produced 3 days after anti-IgM/R848 stimulation. **p < 0.01 by two-way ANOVA analysis with Bonferroni post tests.
