Table 2 Association between ISG score and haematological parameters

From: Type I interferon in patients with systemic autoimmune rheumatic disease is associated with haematological abnormalities and specific autoantibody profiles

  ISG negative (n = 101) ISG positive (n = 63) p value
Haemolytic anaemia 1/99 (1.01) 1/60 (1.67) 0.614
Haemoglobin (mg/dl) 13.4 (12.5, 13.9) 12.9 (11.6, 13.3) 0.004
Total WCC (109/l) 5.80 (4.55, 7.25) 4.95 (3.60, 5.80) 0.001
Lymphocyte count (109/l) 1.62 (1.27, 2.10) 1.31 (0.96, 1.75) 0.002
Neutrophil count (109/l) 3.39 (2.47, 4.51) 2.81 (1.99, 3.86) 0.020
Platelet count (109/l) 253 (221, 311) 249 (191, 286) 0.078
