IFN-Regulated Chemokines Are Associated with SLE Disease Activity
Shown are 20 serum analytes that exhibited significant positive (highlighted in yellow) or negative (highlighted in blue) correlation coefficients with clinical measures of SLE. The IFN gene score was calculated from 82 IFN-inducible transcripts measured by concurrent whole blood gene expression microarrays. The chemokine protein “score” was calculated using the seven IFN-regulated CC and CXC chemokines highlighted in red. * p < 0.05; ** p < 0.01; *** p < 0.001; **** p < 0.0001. p-Values were obtained by permutation testing.
