Expression of some other inflammatory factors in each group. (a-e) mRNA expressions of IL-7, IL-10, IL-12A, IL-17A and IL-18 in the tonsils were determined by qRT-PCR. Data were expressed as mean ± SEM. n = 20 in control group; n = 10 in TH group; n = 15 in TH + RI group. *P < 0.05 compared to the control group; #P < 0.05compared to the TH group; ###P < 0.001 compared to the TH group; ns (no significance) compared to the control group or TH group
