Serum MIF levels in patients compared to controls. (a) MIF levels tended to decrease with increasing age. Using analysis of covariance, and , respectively, for the age effect and between-groups difference. For the whole study population, the equation was – 79.3x (), . On the bottom, MIF levels are shown as original values (b, unadjusted geometric means with 95% CI) and after adjustment for age (c, estimated marginal means with SE).
