Comparative analysis of the percentage of CD45+ cells, total monocyte population and monocyte subsets in mild asthmatic patients (n = 22), moderate asthmatic patients (n = 32) and severe asthmatic patients (n = 22) compared to healthy control patients (n = 35). Each monocyte subset is shown as box groups where the left box indicates healthy subjects and the next boxes indicate mild, moderate and severe asthmatic patients respectively. The box ranges from the 25th to 75th percentile, where the top end of the whiskers indicates the largest value less than the sum of 75th percentile plus 1.5×IQR (interquartile range) and any values greater than this are considered outliers (represented by dots) and the bottom end of the whiskers indicates the lowest value greater than the 25th percentile minus 1.5×IQR and any values less than this are considered outliers. The middle line represents the median. Significance was calculated using Holm–Sidak unpaired multiple comparison test and is indicated with **(p < 0.01)
