Table 3 Correlations of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP) with procalcitonin, and of LBP with C-reactive protein at study entry (baseline measurement)

From: Significance of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (an acute phase protein) in monitoring critically ill patients

  LBP + PCT LBP + CRP
  r P r P
SIRS (noninfectious etiology; n = 40) 0.23 0.19 -0.046 0.79
Sepsis + septic shock (infectious etiology; n = 28) 0.35 0.046 0.54 0.002
Survivors (n = 43) 0.27 0.054 0.22 0.14
Nonsurvivors (n = 25) 0.22 0.32 0.58 0.004
