Table S1 Quantitation of total and desmoglein 3 (Dsg3)-specific IgG1 and IgG4 in patients with pemphigus vulgaris (PV, n = 27), including interquartile (IQ) ranges.
Table S2 Quantitation of total and desmoglein 1 (Dsg1)-specific IgG1 and IgG4 in patients with pemphigus foliaceus (PF, n = 16), including interquartile (IQ) ranges. aFor PF1, the percentage IgG4 Dsg1-specific could not be calculated as the total IgG4 was undetectable; therefore 15 samples contributed to the median analyses for the last two columns.
