The differences of interstitial T lymphocytes in lung tissue between different rejection grades. CD3 (PA0-A1 = 0.43, PA1-A2 = 0.02, PA2-A3 = 0.52, PA3-A4 = 0.03); CD4 (PA0-A1 = 0.06, PA1-A2 = 0.22, PA2-A3 = 0.93, PA3-A4 = 0.02); CD8 (PA0-A1 = 0.00, PA1-A2 = 0.02, PA2-A3 = 0.18, PA3-A4 = 0.03). Control: the normal lung tissue; A0-A4: the rejections in different intensity grades. Notes: The rejection grades were the final diagnoses based on the diagnostic standards of the International Society of Heart and Lung.
