  1. *Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient was used to show the association between SSL and pruritus severity (scaled by pruritus score) in senilepruritus. Note that sphingomyelin, Cer-NP, Cer-AS, Cer-NDS, Cer-NS have positive correlations with pruritus scores, while Cer-BS, Cer-EODS, Cer-EOS, Cer-AP have negative correlations, but P value did not reach to statistically significant
