Percentages of Th17 cell in the stimulated PBMCs in the presence of different cytokines. Percentages of Th17 cells over the anti-CD3/CD28-stimulated PBMCs of the healthy donors following treatment with IL-1βhi (25 ng/ml), IL-1βlo (10 ng/ml), IL-6hi (50 ng/ml), IL-6lo (25 ng/ml), TGF-βhi (5 ng/ml) and TGF-βlo (0.5 ng/ml) are indicated. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM from six independent experiments. * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01.
