Serum Levels of Soluble ST2 and IL-10 Are Associated with Disease Severity in Patients with IgA Nephropathy

Figure 5

Correlation analysis of serum sST2 with the levels of IL-2, IL-4, IL-10, IL-17A, and IFN-γ in IgAN patients. The potential correlations between serum sST2 and the levels of IL-2, IL-4, IL-10, IL-17A, and IFN-γ were analyzed by Spearman correlation tests. Data shown are the mean concentration of individual subjects from two separate experiments. (a) Serum sST2 levels were correlated positively with IL-10. ((b)–(e)) No correlation was found between serum sST2 and the levels of IL-2, IL-4, IL-17A, and IFN-γ in IgAN patients, respectively.
