  1. Spearman correlation coefficients (rs) and p values for CMV and CMV+ persons and for the whole cohort are shown. p < 0.05 was considered significant. For NK, NKT, monocytes, T cells, CD8+ and CD4+ T cells NCMV = 30, NCMV+ = 35, Nall = 65, for B cells and plasma cells NCMV = 19, NCMV+ = 22, Nall = 41 (part of the same cohort). NK cells are defined as CD3CD56+, T cells as CD3+, NKT cells as CD3+CD56+, monocytes as CD14+ and B cells as CD19+ leukocytes. Plasma cells are defined as CD38hiCD138+ B cells. Detailed gating strategy is shown in Fig. 2
