Cerebrospinal Fluid Cytokines in Patients with Neurosyphilis: The Significance of Interleukin-10 for the Disease

Figure 1

CSF levels of IL-10, NFL, and sTREM2 in ANS, SNS, and NNS. The CSF IL-10 levels were significantly higher in SNS patients than in patients with ANS and NNS, and the CSF IL-10 levels were significantly higher in ANS patients than NNS patients (a). Like CSF IL-10, similar differences between groups were also found in CSF sTREM2 (b) and CSF NFL (c). ANS: asymptomatic neurosyphilis; SNS: symptomatic neurosyphilis; NNS: nonneurosyphilis; IL: interleukin; sTREM2: soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2; NFL: neurofilament light protein.
