Table 2 Relationship between serum CEA and HMGB1 levels and clinical characteristics in all patients

From: Serum high mobility group box-1 (HMGB1) is closely associated with the clinical and pathologic features of gastric cancer

Variables CEA P- value HMGB1 P- value
Age* (γp) 0.078 p > 0.05 - 0.044 p > 0.05
Sexs) 0.071 p > 0.05 - 0.187 p = 0.005
H. pylori infections) - 0.121 p > 0.05 - 0.046 p > 0.05
CEA*(γp) - - 0.081 p > 0.05
HMGB1*(γp) 0.081 p > 0.05 - -
  1. * This variable is evaluated by Pearson correlation (for continuous variables). γp, Pearson correlation coefficients.
  2. This variable is evaluated by Spearman correlation (for non-continuous variables). γs, Spearman correlation coefficients.
