Table 5 Cell proportions. Relative cell proportions of adherent macrophages M, adherent fibroblasts F, and non-adherent cells N for peitients 1–6 obtained from immunohistochemistry by analyzing tissue samples in close vicinity to the sample from which the mRNA was isolated. The fraction of non-adherent cells consists of T-cells (T), B-cells (B), plasma cells (P), and endothelial cells (E). If standard deviations are given, three samples were analyzed. The proportions are given in percent.
