Table 4 Receiver-operating (ROC) characteristic analysis of the predictive value of cardiac and inflammatory markers

From: Effect of flaxseed supplementation and exercise training on lipid profile, oxidative stress and inflammation in rats with myocardial ischemia

Parameter Area under the curve Best cutoff value Sensitivity% Specificity%
Cardiac troponin 1.0 0.515 100 100
Paraoxonase 1 0.0 -- -- --
Interleukin-1β 1.0 96.5 100 100
Pentraxin 3 1.0 0.22 100 100
TNF-α 0.83 28.5 100 70
  1. Analysis of cardiac troponin, paraoxonase 1, interleukin -1β, pentraxin 3 and TNF- α in myocardial ischemia rats and their controls (n=20). All the tested parameters except for paraoxonase 1 have area under the curve (AUC) near 1 and appropriate levels of specificity and sensitivity.
