Flow cytometric analysis of Treg cells and Th17 cells in the peripheral blood of three groups. Peripheral blood samples were collected from 65 cases of cervical cancer patients, 42 cases of cervical CIN patients and 40 cases of healthy people. Representative flow cytometric results were shown. The indicated percentages in each figure represented the levels of the analyzed cell subsets. (A) Percentages of CD4+CD25+Treg cells in CD4+T cells; (B) Percentages of CD4+CD25+CD127lowTreg cells in CD4+T cells; (C) Percentages of CD8+CD25+CD127lowTreg cells in CD8+T cells; (D) Percentages of CD4+CD25+ FOXP3+Treg cells and CD4+CD25-FOXP3+Treg in CD4+T cells; (E) Percentages of CD8+CD25+ FOXP3+Treg cells in CD8+T cells; (F) Percentages of CD4+IL-17+Th17 cells in CD4+T cells.
