IL-17 production shows a different pattern of cellular immune recognition as compared to IFN-γ. IL-17 production in blood was statistically different in response to the antigens Ag85B (Rv1886c), TB10.4 (Rv0288), PPE - PGR11 (Rv0978c) and PPE34 (Rv1917c). The thick lines (inside the boxplots) represent median values. Identical patient cohorts as in Figure 1.
