Correlations between KP metabolites and NFL in participants with low NAL (a) and high NAL (b). Plasma neurofilament light chain (NFL) correlated with the kynurenine to tryptophan ratio (K/T) and other kynurenine pathway (KP) metabolites, namely kynurenine (KYN), kynurenic acid (KA), and anthranilic acid (AA) in participants with low NAL. Plasma NFL correlated with the K/T and other kynurenine pathway KP metabolites, namely KYN, KA, AA, 3-HK, and QA. Analyses were carried out using Pearson’s correlation coefficient. Log transformed plasma NFL and KP analyte concentrations have been presented
