Expression of mRNA encoding for Coronin-1 and Sp110 in fresh unstimulated whole blood in the various groups studied. Data were normalized relative to the endogenous expression of the human acidic ribosomal protein HuPO. There was no significant difference in Coronin-1 and Sp110 expression (p > 0.05) between the patients' group (group A) and positive close contacts' group (group B). *p < 0.05, for Groups A and B as compared with the uninfected population (groups C and D).
