Higher plasma sVE-cadherin levels by quartile were associated with a hepatic failure on enrolling day, but not with b circulatory failure on enrolling day or c coagulation failure on enrolling day. Organ failures were defined by Brussels organ failure scores [30]. d Plasma sVE-cadherin levels were not associated with the development of ARDS defined by Berlin criteria during the study period [32]. Data in panels ad were analyzed by linear-by-linear association test. e Plasma sVE-cadherin levels were associated with the number of organ failures on enrolling day. f Plasma sVE-cadherin levels were significantly higher in patients with greater than 2 organ failures compared with patients with 2 or fewer organ failures on enrolling day. Data in panel e and f were summarized as boxplots where box encompasses 25th–75th percentile, error bars encompass 10th–90th percentile, and horizontal line shows median. Data in panels e and f were analyzed by Kruskal-Wallis H test
