Table 3 Correlation coefficients of PCSK9 in the different blood compartments with CRP measured in serum, and resistin, galectin-3, pentraxin 3, chemerin, adiponectin, leptin and IL-6 measured in the respective blood compartments. Highlighted in yellow are the correlation coefficients in the subgroup of patients with alcoholic disease etiology. Superscript numbers indicate the number of patients where these data were available. * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01

From: Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) levels are not associated with severity of liver disease and are inversely related to cholesterol in a cohort of thirty eight patients with liver cirrhosis
