Fig. 4

Natural killer cell degranulation. Bar graph plots representing in vitro assessment of NK cell degranulation markers. Data is represented as either unstimulated or stimulated with K562 target cells, and treated or untreated with RTX. a CD107a and b CD107b in CFS/ME (n = 6) and NFC (n = 7). Data is represented as the percentage of extracellular degranulation markers. Data presented as mean ± standard deviation. * refers to significant difference where p < 0.05 and ** refers to significance difference where p < 0.01. Abbreviations: CFS, chronic fatigue syndrome; NFC, non-fatigued controls; RTX, rituximab; Stim, stimulated; ME, myalgic encephalomyelitis
