Table 4 Correlations with serum resistin levels

From: Serum resistin levels in critically ill patients are associated with inflammation, organ dysfunction and metabolism and may predict survival of non-septic patients

  1. r = correlation coefficient; r and P values by Spearman rank correlation.
  2. APACHE = Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation;CRP = C-reactive protein; fT3 = free triiodo-thyronine; fT4 = free thyroxine; HDL = high-density lipoprotein; HOMA IR = homeostasis model assessment index of insulin resistance; IL = interleukin; LDL = low-density lipoprotein; Lp(a) = lipoprotein (a); ns = not significant; PCHE = pseudocholinesterase; PO4 = phosphate; TNF-α = tumor necrosis factor α.
