Table 3 CSF iron biomarker distributions at baseline [median (interquartile range)] in younger as compared to older CHARTER subjects

From: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers of iron status are associated with CSF viral load, antiretroviral therapy, and demographic factors in HIV-infected adults

CSF biomarker Age ≤ 35 (N = 65) Age > 50 (N = 69) p -value
Iron (µg/dL) 3.00 (1.75, 6.37) 3.88 (2.30, 6.25) n.s.
Transferrin (µg/mL) 14.51 (9.96, 23.16) 19.29 (13.21, 33.42) <0.01
H-ferritin (ng/mL) 2.24 (1.22, 4.01) 3.37 (2.47, 5.21) <0.01
