After controlling for time since HIV diagnosis, individuals with moderate-severe depression had a significantly higher kynurenine/tryptophan ratio (Mean = 58.76, SE = 4.07) compared to either: a) those with no depression (Mean = 47.97, SE = 3.32; p < .05) or b) those mild-moderate depression (Mean = 45.97, SE = 3.71; p < .05).
