Selective Increment of Synovial Soluble TYRO3 Correlates with Disease Severity and Joint Inflammation in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis

Figure 4

Relationship between soluble Tyro3 levels and inflammatory markers in the blood and synovial fluid of RA patients. Relationship between soluble Tyro3 (sTyro3) and the cytokines TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-8, and IL-10 in the synovial fluid of rheumatoid arthritis patients (). Correlations are depicted for sTyro3–TNF-α (a), sTyro3–IL-1β (b), sTyro3–IL-8 (c), and sTyro3–IL-10 (d). Relationship between soluble Tyro3 (sTyro3) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood of rheumatoid arthritis patients (). Correlations are depicted for sTyro3–ESR (e) and sTyro3–CRP (f). Data are presented as Pearson value () and value () for each correlation. ; ; and .
