Table 2 The incidence of MODS, septic shock and non-survival in carriers of the different PAI-1 4G/5G genotypes

From: 4G/5G polymorphism of PAI-1 gene is associated with multiple organ dysfunction and septic shock in pneumonia induced severe sepsis: prospective, observational, genetic study

Genotype n MODS (%) Septic shock (%) Non-survivors (%)
4G/4G 63 39 (61.9%) 32 (50.8%) 27 (42.9%)
4G/5G 105 67 (63.8%) 47 (44.8%) 41 (39.0%)
5G/5G 39 15 (38.5%) 10 (25.6%) 10 (25.6%)
