Table 2 Comparing immune cell-frequencies and cell/cell ratios between early and dual responders after allergen challenge

From: Th17/Treg ratio derived using DNA methylation analysis is associated with the late phase asthmatic response

A. Comparing immune cell-frequencies between ERs and DRs after allergen challenge
  Fold-change (post-pre) in early responders Fold-change (post-pre) in dual responders ΔER vs. ΔDR
Mean ± SEM Mean ± SEM p-value
T cell -2.20 ± 1.40 -4.26 ± 2.39 0.45
B cell -0.20 ± 0.17 -0.11 ± 0.26 0.77
