Correlation between percentages of IL-23R+ T cells and SLEDAI and IL-17+ T cells and SLEDAI in active SLE patients. (a, b) Relationships between the percentages of IL-23R+ CD4+ or CD8+ T cells on Day 0 and Day 3 and SLEDAI in active SLE groups are shown. (c, d) Relationships between the percentages of IL-17+ T CD4+ or CD8+ T cells on Day 3 from SLE patients (r = 0.6056, P = 0.0283 for CD4+ and r = 0.6085, P = 0.0273 for CD8+) are shown.
