“Cytokine signatures” in HCV patients according to the fibrosis score. The ascendant frequency of subjects with “high” serum cytokine levels was assembled for (a) HCV patients () and uninfected controls () as well as (b) for the HCV patients categorized into subgroups referred as F1-2 () and F3-4 (). Relevant elements in the cytokine signature that emerge above the 50th percentile (cut-off line) were highlighted by *. Additional analyses were carried out to identify relevant elements in the cytokine signature able to differentiate clinical groups (HCV versus NI or F1-2 versus and F3-4) and the elements in the cytokine signature of each group that emerge above the 50th percentile were highlight by grayscale background rectangles
