Additional file 2 of Lymphocyte depletion and repopulation after chemotherapy for primary breast cancer

Figure S1. The proportion of CD4+ T cells defined as recent thymic emigrants is reduced after chemotherapy and shows no evidence of normalising. Recent thymic emigrant CD4+ T cells were quantified by multi-parameter flow cytometry and their numbers are presented as the proportion of the total CD4+ T cell pool. Data are shown for samples taken pre-chemotherapy (pre) and 3, 6, and 9 months (3m, 6m, 9m) after the end of chemotherapy. Boxes represent 50 % of the data, with medians (lines), interquartile ranges (whiskers) and individual outliers (circles). * p < 0.001. (TIF 192 kb)
