Elevated plasma ceramide levels in post-menopausal women: a cross-sectional study

Figure 1. Scatter plot of plasma ceramide concentrations in women aged 20 to 78 years. (A) Total ceramide levels in 84 female subjects included in the study. Pearson’s correlation is considered statistically significant at p < .05. (B) Average levels of individual ceramide species in pre-menopausal women (20-54 years, n = 44, open bars) and post-menopausal women (47-78 years, n = 40, closed bars). Results are expressed as mean ± SEM. *p < .05, **p < .01, ***p < .001; unpaired Student’s t-test.
