High Intestinal and Systemic Levels of Interleukin-23/T-Helper 17 Pathway in Chinese Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Serum IL-12p40 and TL1A levels were elevated in patients with UC. (a) Levels of IL-12p40 were higher in patients with UC (median, 95% CI: 255.59, 68.16–4756.60 pg/mL) than healthy controls (164.43, 0.1–986.43 pg/mL, ). (b) Serum TL1A concentrations were significantly increased in UC (354.24, 172.78–7113.24 pg/mL) as compared with healthy controls (218.95, 0–2032.06 pg/mL, ). P values refer to Mann-Whitney U test (for 2-group comparison). Horizontal lines represent median values for each group.
