Figure 3: Correlation of serum GITRL levels with laboratory values. Each symbol represents an individual patient. (a) Positive correlation was observed between serum GITRL levels and the titers of antidsDNA antibody. (b) Positive correlation was also seen between serum GITRL levels and ESR. (c) Positive correlation was also observed between serum GITRL levels and IgM. (d) Negative relationship was observed between serum GITRL levels and C3. Anti-dsDNA antibody, antidouble stranded DNA antibody. C3: complement 3; ESR: erythrocyte sedimentation rate; IgM: immunoglobulin M.
