Inflammatory Serum Protein Profiling of Patients with Lumbar Radicular Pain One Year after Disc Herniation

Figure 2

Linear discriminant analysis. An inflammation score was computed for each patient as a weighted average of the protein expression levels for the 41 biomarkers (FDR < 0.10). The scores were adjusted so that positive values indicate an ongoing inflammation and negative values indicate lack of inflammation. The scores are plotted for all patients (patient ID 1–45) in the study.
