Concentrations of survivin and Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. (a) Survivin concentration in controls (n = 155), presymptomatic individuals (n = 47) and patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA; n = 36). A significant Kruskal–Wallis test was found between the three groups (P < 0.001). The Mann–Whitney U test was used for comparisons between two groups. ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01 and *P < 0.05. (b) Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt3L) concentration in controls (n = 155), presymptomatic individuals (n = 47) and patients with RA (n = 36). A significant Kruskal–Wallis test was found between the three groups (P < 0.05). The Mann–Whitney U test was used for comparisons between two groups, **P < 0.01. n.s, not significant.
