Scores scatter plot of (A) PCA showing discrimination between endometriosis and controls, (B) PLS-DA showing improved discrimination between the two groups. (C) PLS-DA model cross-validation by permutation test statistics showing that the R2 (0.986) and Q2 (0.976) values of the original model are significantly greater than those of the 100 permutated models, indicating a good predictive ability. Variable extraction using (D) loading and (E) VIP plots showing that IL-10 is the most important variable for class separation.
