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

Figure 6

Correlation analysis of serum sST2 with the levels of IL-10 in different stages of IgAN patients. The potential relationships between serum sST2 and the levels of IL-10 in the different stages of IgAN patients were analyzed by Spearman correlation tests. Data shown are the mean concentration of individual subjects from two separate experiments. ((a)–(c)) Serum sST2 was positively correlated with the levels of IL-10 in Stage I+II, Stage III, and Stage IV+V of IgAN patients, respectively.
