  IPF CTD-IP Sarcoidosis Controls P value
TLR-2 18.4 ± 13.27 3.12 ± 0.96 3.23 ± 1.31 4.22 ± 1 NS
TLR-4 32.45 ± 5.41 38.52 ± 4.94 28.06 ± 6.34 29.3 ± 8.15 NS
TLR-9 14.85 ± 3.82 36.7 ± 7.06 27 ± 6.72 36.8 ± 10.26 p1:0.025
  1. Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM (standard error of the mean). Mann-Whitney U test; P < 0.05 is considered statistically significant. NS, not significant. p1: P value between IPF and CTD-IPs, p2: P value between IPF and sarcoidosis, p3: P value between IPF and control, p4: P value between CTD-IP and sarcoidosis, p5: P value between CTD-IP and control, p6: P value between sarcoidosis and control.
