Activation and exhaustion of MAIT cells in peritoneal microenvironment from different groups. CD38 and PD-1 were used as a marker for activation of MAIT cells and exhaustion of MAIT cells respectively (a and b). All EMS patients and early stage group have higher expression of CD38 on CD8 MAIT subset (c and d). The control group shows a significantly higher level of PD-1 expression on DN MAIT cells as compared to those from EMS patients (e and f). * indicates P < 0.05 and ** indicates P < 0.01
