From: Cytokine expression profiles of immune imbalance in post-mononucleosis chronic fatigue

Classification based on Stepwise model of IL-1a, 6, 8,13, 23 Consensus model of IL-6, 8, and 23 Minimal model of IL-6 and 8

  1. Performance of linear classification models based on (i) a stepwise selection of IL-1a, 6, 8, 13 and 23, (ii) the intersecting subset of IL-6, 8 and 23 found in both stepwise and all-possible-subsets models and (iii) a core selection of IL-6 and 8, the two most robust choices based on simulations with random data substitutions.
