Figure 6. Comparison of fecal water cytokines in Normal Aging and MAP groups. Concentration of 11 fecal water cytokines (pg/ml) are described in each box plot comparing Normal Aging and three timepoints of MAP groups. Significant different two-tailed p values of Mann-Whitney U test are presented as **** p < 0.0001, *** p ≥ 0.0001 - < 0.001, ** p ≥ 0.001 - < 0.01, * p ≥ 0.01- < 0.05. In each box plot, median line, + mean, upper and lower quartiles, upper and lower extremes and whiskers are presented. The groups of the subjects represented by three different color-coded symbols with sample size are indicated in parenthesis in the legend. MAP= Mindful awareness program, IL= Interleukin, IL-1β= Interleukin-1 beta, TNFα= Tumor necrosis factor alpha, IFNγ= Interferon gamma, GM-CSG= Granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor.
