Table 4 Mean values for gene expression for different cytokines in different groups. Calculated p value comparing the 3 study groups using the Kruskal-Wallis test, with a p value <0.05 considered significant

From: Toxoplasmosis and abortion: pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines gene expression of the host immune cells
