Table 4 Correlation of BALF and serum ATX levels with SOFA and APACHE II scores and the PaO2/FIO2 ratio in patients with ARDS

From: Autotaxin levels in serum and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid are associated with inflammatory and fibrotic biomarkers and the clinical outcome in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome

Biomarkers BALF ATX Serum ATX
Spearman’s rank (95% CI) P value Spearman’s rank (95% CI) P value
SOFA score 0.200 (−0.080-0.451) 0.1587 0.307 (0.029-0.541) 0.0267
APACHE II score −0.019 (−0.301-0.266) 0.8951 0.156 (−0.131-0.418) 0.2703

  1. P values less than 0.05 are statistically significant. APACHE, Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation; ATX, autotaxin; BALF, bronchoalveolar lavage fluid; CI, confidence interval; FIO2, fraction of inspired oxygen; PaO2, arterial oxygen tension; SOFA, Sequential Organ Failure Assessment
