Correlations between serum CTSG, NE, and PR3 levels and clinical indicators. Serum levels of CTSG in DM/PM correlated positively with levels of LDH, ESR, IgG, and IgA (a). Serum levels of NE in DM/PM correlated positively with CRP and IgM (b). Serum levels of PR3 correlated positively with CRP, ESR, IgG, and IgM in DM/PM patients (c). Patients with anti-Jo-1, with anti-Ro-52, or without ILD had lower levels of PR3 (d). CRP C-reactive protein, CTSG cathepsin G, ESR erythrocyte sedimentation rate, Ig immunoglobulin, ILD interstitial lung disease, LDH lactic dehydrogenase, NE neutrophil elastase, PR3 proteinase 3. *represents compared with patients, whose anti-Ro-52 antibody or anti-Jo-1 antibody are negative, or patients with ILD P < 0.05
