Table 2 Comparison of 2 day to 5 day cytokine responses

From: A melanoma helper peptide vaccine increases Th1 cytokine production by leukocytes in peripheral blood and immunized lymph nodes

  2 Day(n = 23) 5 Day(n = 11) t-test*
IFN-γ 112 1380 0.03
TNF-α 17 92 0.45
IL-2 12 0.1 0.004
IL-10 1.6 12 0.062
IL-4 4.4 3.2 0.8
IL-5 20 267 0.02
Total 178 1756 0.003
  1. Summary of cytokine values at 2-day culture versus 5-day culture following 6MHP vaccination. Mean cytokine at peak time point are shown in pg/ml and mean values are shown. Value are background and baseline corrected. Bold face highlights p-values <0.05. *The 5 day analysis represents a subset of the 2 day cohort so this is a descriptive analysis only.
