Combination of lymphocyte number and function in evaluating host immunity

Figure 6. The number and function of lymphocytes in transplant recipients at different time points. (A) Scatter plots showing the number and function of CD4+, CD8+ T cells, and NK cells in stable group (n=30) at pretransplantation, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, and 6 months after transplantation. Horizontal lines indicate the median. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001 (Wilcoxon test) (compared with pretransplantation). #P < 0.05, ##P < 0.01, ###P < 0.001 (Wilcoxon test) (compared with 2 weeks after transplantation). (B) Line diagrams showing the number and function of CD4+, CD8+ T cells, and NK cells at different days after transplantation in 1 rejection patient. (C) Line diagrams showing the number and function of CD4+, CD8+ T cells, and NK cells at different days after transplantation in 4 infection patients.
