Figure 4: Box plots elucidating combined serum cytokines data in different groups of patients. (A) interleukin (IL)-12/interleukin-23p40 and (C) tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-á) level showing highest concentration in rheumatic fever (RF) compared to the other groups, (F) rheumatic heart disease (RHD) group showing an elevated level of IL-6 concentration (B) IL-17A showing highest concentration in RF but significantly high in RHD, whereas (D) interferon gamma (INF-ã), (E) IL-10, (G) interleukin-4, and (H) IL-2 showing no comparable difference among the groups.
