Reassessment of protein serum markers interferon (IFN)-γ, interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP) and Regulated upon activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted (RANTES) by cytometric bead array (CBA) and ELISA (arbitrary serum concentration units). Between 11 and 15 randomly selected sera from the different NF1 groups (for IFN-γ, IL-6, TNF-α: all NF1 vs. control; for IGFBP and RANTES: NF1 with no PNF or MPNST, NF1 with only PNF- and NF1 with MPNST) and 5 control sera were tested as indicated (ND, not determined). Where available, associated protein array data are shown. Statistical analysis is shown for CBA/ELISA data (t-test).
