qPCR validation of miRNA expression levels in samples from the latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) group versus the healthy control group. Relative expressions of miR-424-5p, miR-496-5p, miR-27a-3p, miR-377-5p, and miR-3680-5p in LTBI and healthy samples. Statistical analysis was performed using the unpaired t-test. **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05, NS: not significant.
