Correlation between cytokines concentration in SF from RA patients. Correlations among concentrations of IL-15Ralpha, IL-15, IL-6 and TNF alpha in SF from RA patients were analyzed using spearman’s rank correlation for all possible combinations. Correlations were significant between IL-6/ IL-15Ralpha (A) and IL-15/Il-15Ralpha (B), but not for IL-15Ralpha/TNFalpha (C), IL-6/TNFalpha (D), TNFalpha/IL-15 (E) or IL-6/IL-15 (F). r (the Spearman correlation coefficient), p (p value, was set at significant at 0.05).
