  1. The number of nodes, average degree (<k>), clustering coefficient (<C>), diameter of the network (D) and mean shortest path length (mspl) are shown for the overall networks (full) or for the giant component of each network (by considering only the nodes linked to the bigger subnetwork). The four networks analyzed are the MS in blood tissue (MS-blood); AD in blood tissue (AD-blood), MS in brain tissue (MS-brain) and the AD in brain tissue (AD-brain).
