Association of Rv2623 in the CSF level with routine CSF findings was studied using the correlation analysis in TMB, LTBM and control group. We found that correlation pattern between Rv2623 and CSF Total cell count, protein, sugar and sugar/parallel blood sugar ratio were similar in TBM and LTBM group (Supplementary Figures 1-2). In contrast we did not find any correlation between Rv2623 presence and CSF findings in control group (Supplementary Figure 3).
