CD8 immunophenotyping in PD cases (n = 41) versus age-matched controls (n = 41). a Following gating of the lymphocyte and singlet populations, CD8 cells were gated on the basis of high CD3 and CD8 staining, and the CD28loCD57hi subset was identified as a discrete population of CD8+ cells using 5% contour plots. Quadrant gates were used to divide the CD8 population into naïve, central memory, effector memory and TEMRA (terminally differentiated effector memory CD45RA+ve cells) subsets on pseudocolour dot plots. b Individual-level data for CD8 cell subsets (shown as percentage of lymphocytes). c Individual-level data for surface marker expression in CD8 T cells (median fluorescence intensity (MFI) ratio versus unstained lymphocytes). Horizontal lines denote means; *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 in paired t tests
