Table 1 Summary of subject information

From: Genes and pathways underlying regional and cell type changes in Alzheimer's disease

Category Control AD P-value
Gender 11 M/5 F 9 M/8 F 0.37
Age 81.7 ± 6.9 77.3 ± 9.1 0.13
PMI 10.8 ± 6.8 11.2 ± 6.3 0.85
Plaques 0.58 ± 0.51 2.59 ± 0.51 6.0E-11
Braak 1.50 ± 0.52 5.33 ± 0.62 6.0E-14
  1. Control and AD groups are controlled for gender, age at death (years), and PMI (postmortem interval in hours) as closely as possible, but there is a significant difference in plaque burden (0 to 3; 0 = none, 1 = sparse, 2 = moderate, and 3 = severe) and Braak stage (0 to 6) [13] between groups, as expected. Values are mean ± standard deviation. Gender indicates the number of subjects of each gender (M, male; F, female) per group.
