Presented in descending order after Spearman Correlation in presymptomatic individuals. Only cytokines that remained significant after multiple testing are presented. IL-1Ra, interleukin-1 receptor antagonist; GM-CSF, granulocyte–macrophage colony-stimulating factor; MCP-1, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1; MIG, monokine induced by interferon-gamma; TNFα, tumor necrosis factor alpha. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 and ***P < 0.001 after adjustments for multiple comparisons.
