Correlation of soluble urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) and syndecan-4 levels with multiple scoring systems across 252 patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). r is the correlation coefficient. a, c, e Levels of suPAR were significantly positively correlated with the confusion, urea, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and age ≥65 years old (CURB-65) score (r = 0.399, p < 0.001), Pneumonia Severity Index (PSI) (r = 0.433, p < 0.001), and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II (APACHE II) score (r = 0.496, p < 0.001), respectively. b, d, f Levels of syndecan-4 were significantly negatively correlated with CURB-65 score (r = -0.220, p = 0.001), PSI (r = -0.279, p < 0.001), and APACHE II score (r = -0.184, p = 0.003), respectively
