## Figure 1.
Results of the data reduction strategy identifying immune response profiles correlated
with radiographic joint damage. Shown are stem-and-leaf schematics summarizing the hierarchy of correlation coefficients
for each of the stimulus-cytokine principal component analysis scores. (A) Unadjusted Spearman correlation coefficients. (B) Partial Spearman correlation coefficients, adjusted for age, sex, disease duration,
rheumatoid factor status, anti-citrullinated protein antibody status, the Health Assessment
Questionnaire (HAQ) disability index, the Disease Activity Score in 28 joints (DAS28),
and use of methotrexate, biologic response modifiers, and/or prednisone. The decimal
point is one digit to the left of the vertical bar (for example, the bottom value
in the left panel is r = 0.31). The highest unadjusted and adjusted correlation coefficients
(r = 0.31 and r = 0.39, respectively) correspond to the CMV/EBV first principal component
score. CMV, cytomegalovirus; EBV, Epstein Barr virus
