The change refers to the difference from baseline i.e. change in x = xvisit 7 - xbaseline
This shows a three-way differential gene expression analysis on baseline synovial biopsies of patients classified considering treatment switch: patients who responded to rituximab after failing tocilizumab (pro-RTX, blue), patients who responded to Tocilizumab after failing Rituximab (pro-TOC, yellow) and patients who failed both drugs sequentially (refractory, red). Blue genes have a significant change (q < 0.05) in patients who failed tocilizumab but responded to rituximab (pro-RTX). Gold genes indicate a significant change in patients who failed rituximab but responded to tocilizumab (pro-TOC). Green genes indicate significance in pro-RTX and pro-TOC patients. Red genes are significantly upregulated in refractory patients, who failed both drugs. Grey genes are not significantly changed, or not specific for any group of patients.
