P2X7R expression on lymphocytes (a), CD4+ (b) and CD4 cells (c), and monocytes (d) is elevated in patients with neuropathic pain. PBMCs were stained with PerCP-labeled antihuman CD4 antibody and FITC-labeled antihuman P2X7R antibody and analyzed by FACS. The results show a significantly elevated P2X7R expression only in patients suffering from neuropathic pain on the analyzed cell type (lymphocytes (p = 0.009), CD4+ cells (p < 0.001), CD4 cells (p = 0.039), and monocytes (p = 0.002)). Data are presented as mean ± SD, n = 19, *p < 0.05 in one-way ANOVA with multiple comparisons versus healthy volunteers (Holm-Sidak method)
