Effect of Selenium on HLA-DR Expression of Thyrocytes
Investigation of HLA-DR expression on thyrocytes induced by IFN-γ in the absence and presence of selenium. Figures in the table represent mean percentage DR positive human thyroid cells ±SD. All experiments were made in triplicate. ns. = not significant.
