Table 3 Correlation between intrathecal IgG synthesis parameters and BAFF Index or CXCL13

From: BAFF Index and CXCL13 levels in the cerebrospinal fluid associate respectively with intrathecal IgG synthesis and cortical atrophy in multiple sclerosis at clinical onset

(A) All patients BAFF Index  
 IgG Loc (mg/dL) −0.41* 0.59***
 IgIF (%) −0.36 0.45*
 IgG Index −0.38 0.48*
(B) Only IS+ BAFF Index LCS-CXCL13
 IgG Loc (mg/dL) −0.56* 0.57*
 IgIF (%) −0.52* 0.35
 IgG Index −0.64* 0.43
  1. The correlation was calculating on overall population of BOIgG+ patients (A) or including only patients with quantitatively increased intrathecal IgG synthesis (IS+, B). R values derived from Pearson’s single linear model are represented. Other abbreviations as in Table 2
