Figure 6

Correlation between TGF-β1 concentration and (a) frequency of Tregs in MPEs-malignant pleural effusions with malignant cells, MPEs-malignant pleural effusions without malignant cells, and nMPEs-nonmalignant pleural effusions and (b) relative mRNA expression of FOXP3, CD28, CTLA-4, and GITR genes in CD4+CD25+ cells isolated from all pleural effusions.
