Table 3 HLA-DR expression

From: Decreased CD8+T cell response to Epstein-Barr virus infected B cells in multiple sclerosis is not due to decreased HLA class I expression on B cells or monocytes

  HC
(n= 30)
All MS
(n= 33)
RRMS
(n= 10)
SPMS
(n= 15)
PPMS
(n= 8)
B cell HLA-DR MFI 4745 ± 127 4729 ± 147 4894 ± 209 4489 ± 279 4974 ± 135
p value   0.940 > 0.05 > 0.05 > 0.05
Monocyte HLA-DR MFI 4122 ± 337 4321 ± 314 4657 ± 683 4122 ± 384 4273 ± 729
p value   0.655 > 0.05 > 0.05 > 0.05
  1. All values presented as mean ± standard error.
  2. HC: healthy control subjects; All MS: total group of MS patients, RRMS: relapsing-remitting MS, SPMS: secondary progressive MS, PPMS: primary progressive MS, MFI: mean fluorescence intensity.
  3. All p values are for comparisons with HC, using the Mann-Whitney rank sum test for the comparison with All MS, and using one-way analysis of variance with Dunnett's test for multiple comparisons for comparisons with RRMS, SPMS and PPMS; p values < 0.05 are considered significant.
