*Method one: “Raw” model only includes one independent variable: either raw IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 ; “by IL-5” includes either raw IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 and IL-5; “by IL-13” includes either raw IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 and IL-13; “by IL-9” includes either raw IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 and IL-9; “by IL-4” includes either raw IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 and IL-4. Method two: either adjusted IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 was fitted in the logistic regression model.; “by IL-5”, “by IL-13”, “by IL-9”, and “by IL-4”indicate that the levels of either adjusted IL-10 or IFN- 𝛾 was adjusted by IL-5, IL-13, IL-9, and IL-4, respectively.
