Additional file 1: Figure S1. of Anti-N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor encephalitis: the clinical course in light of the chemokine and cytokine levels in cerebrospinal fluid

Chemokine and cytokine levels in CSF and peripheral blood. The Wilcoxon signed ranked test was used for pairwise analyses of the CSF and sera samples to detect differences between the CNS compartment and the peripheral blood. The interesting differences in the general chemokine and cytokine levels between the CNS compartment and the peripheral blood are depicted. A) The CXCL10 concentration was markedly higher in CSF than in serum, whereas B) the CXCL13 and D) BAFF concentrations showed the opposite trend. Because patient No. 1 provided more than 1 sample per period, the average value for this patient was used for multiple-group analysis; a special sign marks this value. (TIF 79 kb)
