Table 1 Relative cytokine expression patterns of opportunistic infection-related IRIS cases compared to matched controls.

From: Multi-analyte profiling of ten cytokines in South African HIV-infected patients with Immune Reconstitution Inflammatory Syndrome (IRIS)

  1. Each disease manifestation exhibited a unique cytokine expression profile. I = relative increases in cytokine expression in IRIS cases compared to Non-IRIS controls, E = equivocal expression compared to Non-IRIS controls, and D = relative decreases in expression compared to Non-IRIS controls.
