PBMCs from all subjects were stimulated with or without mixed S-Ag peptides plus anti-CD28 for 72 h. The culture supernatants were collected and assessed for the production of IFN-γ (), TNF-α (), and IL-17 () by ELISA. The difference in cytokine levels between the negative control and S-Ag stimulation in four groups was analyzed using Student’s -test. The cytokine production by PBMCs upon S-Ag stimulation in each of the four groups was analyzed by ANOVA. Significant statistical difference was set at p
