  1. Indicated are the levels of biochemically measured plasma biomarkers that displayed significant changes controlled for ethnicity and compared with NC cohort. Statistical analyses were performed in a two by three factorial design with post-hoc analyses using IBM SPSS Statistics 22. An outlier test was also performed using IBM SPSS Statistics 22. Significant changes in biomarkers related to ethnic background: *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 ***p < 0.001
