Fig. 1

Comparison of CSF sTREM2 levels between groups and subgroups. Graphs show how CSF sTREM2 levels differ across (a) control and dementia (overall FTD, containing bvFTD and PPA) groups; (b) controls and clinical subgroups; (c) controls and genetic subgroups; and (d) controls and CSF biomarker-defined dementia subgroups (pathological subgroups). AD biomarker-negative dementia: CSF T-tau/Aβ42 ratio < 1.0; AD biomarker-positive dementia: CSF T-tau/Aβ42 ratio > 1.0. Horizontal bars show mean CSF sTREM2 levels and upper and lower 95% CIs for each group. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01.
