Fig. 3. Comparison of cytokines and chemokines among different subtypes of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and controls. (A) IL-6, (B) IL-10, (C) C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 11 (CXCL-11), and (D) C-X-C motif chemokine receptor 3 (CXCR-3). Mann-Whitney U test was used for pair-wise comparison of mRNA levels of cytokines (IL-6 and IL-10) and chemokines (CXCL-11 and CXCR-3) among different subtypes of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and controls. Post hoc Bonferroni test was applied for multiple comparisons. *P-values < 0.05 were considered as significant. **Bonferroni corrected P-values < 0.017 were considered as significant for subgroup analysis. IBS-C, constipation-predominant IBS; IBS-D, diarrhea-predominant IBS.
