 ROC curve for individual set of metabolites 0.92
  1. aThe model is considered valid when the regression line of the permuted Q2 values intercept at, or below zero
  2. bAUC: Area under receiver operating characteristic curve, which is the total area under the curve of sensitivity “true positive rate (TPR)” vs 1-specificity “false positive rate (FPR)”, ideal model gives AUC = 1
  3. cSelected set of biomarkers were 1,3 diacetyl propane, 2-octanedioic acid, N-prolyl histidine, taurine, N-acetylputrescine, N-acetylasparagine, N-acetylspermidine and N-acetylglutamine
