CSF Aβ peptide levels and cognitive decline in DLB. a Associations between baseline CSF Aβ42 levels and subsequent cognitive decline in the DLB group (n = 72) as measured by Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score. b CSF Aβ40. c CSF Aβ38. d CSF Aβ42/Aβ40 ratio. e CSF Aβ42/Aβ38 ratio. f CSF Aβ38/Aβ40 ratio. Associations are shown using linear regression lines, with all DLB patients classified into tertile groups (low, medium, high) according to their CSF Aβ peptide levels for visualization purposes, but for the linear mixed model statistical analysis, continuous CSF Aβ peptide levels were used. Results were essentially the same when using Aβ peptide level tertiles as a categorical predictor
