a TNFa and Bacteroidales/S24–7 are positively associated in both SpA and CD. b IL-6 and Bacteroidales S24–7 are also positively associated in SpA and CD, with one CD patient showing high levels of both analytes. c A subsequent exploration of IL-6 shows positive associations between IL-6 and four other microbial taxa. In this example, the top table includes p-values for the interaction terms for each of three cohorts (CD, SpA, and UC) with respect to the reference group of healthy controls (HC). d The detailed plot shows that the patient with the highest IL-6 values is also relatively high in four other microbial taxa
