Figure 4

The SI for the proliferation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells induced by recombinant proteins after immunization with different antigens. (a) The SI for rESAT6: and and and ; (b) the SI for rCFP10: and and and ; (c) the SI for rCFP10-ESAT6-dIFN. All as compared to the control for the mouse group immunized with this antigen (repeated-measures ANOVA; administration route as a factor, two gradations of control as a factor, and one of the antigens); as compared with unity (Student’s -test).
