Table S3. ESAT6-stimulated IFN-g responses in whole blood cells of TB patients with differing 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels. Data depicts ESAT6-induced IFN-g secretion in whole blood cells after subtraction of spontaneous secretion from unstimulated cells (was equivalent to 0 pg/mL) in each case. Values between groups were compared using determined by Kruskal-Wallis analysis whereby values p < 0.05 were considered significantly different. NS – not significant values. p < 0.05 were considered significantly different.
