Comparison of proportions of different T cell subsets between patients with active or stable SLE. SLE patients were classified based on SLEDAI score as having active disease (score ≥ 10) or stable disease (score ≤ 9). a The CD3+CD4+ T subset made up a smaller proportion of lymphocytes in patients with active disease than in those with stable disease, while CD3+CD4+Tim-3+ and CD3+CD4+Tim-3+Fas- subsets made up a larger proportion of lymphocytes in patients with active disease (&, p < 0.05). b Proportions of CD3+CD4- T cells expressing Tim and Fas were similar between patients with active or stable SLE (#, p > 0.05)
