Figure 3 The ratios of (A) infiltrating granzyme B+ cells (CTL) over Foxp3+ cells (Tregs) and of (B) of infiltrating IL-17+ cells (Th17) over Foxp3+ cells (Tregs) are compared between patients with acute T cell-mediated rejection in the kidney transplant (n = 14) and patients with no rejection (n = 7). All cell types were detected by immunohistochemistry. The horizontal lines indicate the median values. Wilcoxon rank-sum test p values for both comparisons were statistically non-significant. ATCMR: Acute T cell-mediated rejection; CTL: Cytotoxic T lymphocyte.
