Correlation matrix showing the relationships between cytokines across the sites. The interrelationships between the levels of inflammatory cytokines in children with malaria were examined by Spearman’s correlation test, and the results are summarized in a colour matrix. The strength of correlation between pairs of cytokines are illustrated on a colour scale, where the least statistically significant relationships are coloured green while the most significant are in red. (ρ = Spearman’s correlation coefficient)
