  2. The table lists only significant comparisons and only fold changes of median values. Insignificant changes are marked as not significant (n.s.). Amyloid pathology was defined by Aβ42/Aβ40 ratio; tau pathology was defined by total-tau. For detailed descriptions of median values, SDs, and ranges, see Additional file 2, page 8 and following)
