Serum levels of hsCRP in HNF4A-MODY (▲) versus HNF1A-MODY (). Solid lines/box plot showing median and interquartile range and dotted line showing mean. (A) Serum levels excluding two subjects with extreme hsCRP levels. Median of hsCRP in HNF4A-MODY is 0.81 mg/l (IQR = 0.38-1.41 mg/l, n = 9), while median in the. HNF1A-MODY (IQR = 0.17-0.35 mg/l, n = 31) is 0.22 mg/l. The distributions differ significantly (*): Mann–Whitney U-test p = 0.002. (B) Including all hsCRP levels into analysis, increases IQR in HNF1A-MODY (median = 0.22 mg/l, IQR = 0.17-0.38 mg/l, n = 33). There is a significant difference in medians between HNF1A- and HNF4A-MODY (*): Mann–Whitney U-test p = 0.008.
