Table 1 Relationship between TNF and IL6 productions according to gender in different stimulations

From: Gender differences and inflammation: an in vitro model of blood cells stimulation in prepubescent children

Stimulus   R2 slope SD p dF
LPS 0.2 ng/ml Male 0.62 0.15 0.024 <0.0001 23
  Female 0.49 0.25 0.057 <0.0004 19
  Diff. slopes*   - 0.10 z = -7.322 <0.0005  
LPS 1 ng/ml no significative relations nor differences for male and female groups
PWM Male 0.26 0.06 0.02 <0.009 23
  Female 0.21 0.13 0.06 <0.04 19
  Diff. slopes*   - 0.07 z = -4.991 <0.0005  
  1. *: T-test on slopes from male and female groups
