Table 3 Quantification of the neuropathological changes. Synaptic proteins synaptophysin (SYP) and PSD-95 in Alzheimer’s disease cases revealed by ELISA (μg/ml)

From: Systemic infection modifies the neuroinflammatory response in late stage Alzheimer’s disease

Protein concentration (μg/ml) AD- AD+ P value
SYP 1.06 (0.71, 1.74) 1.39 (0.74, 2.46) 0.242
PSD-95 1.95 (0.10, 3.35) 1.92 (1.04, 2.48) 0.374
SYP/PSD-95 0.54 (0.34, 1.15) 0.76 (0.40, 1.50) 0.269
  1. Values are median ± IQR; p value by Mann-Whitney test
  2. SYP Synaptophysin, AD Alzheimer’s disease cases, − died without systemic infection, + died with systemic infection, IQR interquartile range
