Identification of inflammatory and vascular markers associated with mild cognitive impairment

Figure 1. Correlations of plasma sIL-2Rα and sTNFR-1 level with cognitive impairment. Scatter plots illustrated the correlations of plasma sIL-2Rα and sTNFR-1 concentration with cognitive level evaluated by MoCA scores. (A) The correlation of sIL-2Rα with MoCA in the whole cohort (MCI + Control: ρ = -0.305, p = 0.001). (B) The correlation of sIL-2Rα with MoCA in MCI patients (ρ = -0.464, p < 0.001). (C) The correlation of sTNFR-1 with MoCA in the whole cohort (MCI + Control: ρ = -0.235, p = 0.015). (D) the correlation of sTNFR-1 with MoCA in MCI patients (ρ = -0.314, p = 0.019).
