Correlation of different B-cell subsets with laboratory findings in IgG4-related disease (RD) patients. Correlations between the percentages of CD19 + CD24hiCD38hi Breg cells and levels of IgG, IgM, IgA and IgG4, IgG4/IgG ratio, as well as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in IgG4-RD patients (n = 28) were analyzed by Pearson’s rank test (A-F). Correlations between the percentages of CD19 + CD24-CD38hi B cells and levels of IgG, IgM, IgA and IgG4, IgG4/IgG ratio, as well as ESR in IgG4-RD patients were analyzed by Pearson’s rank test (G-L).
