Table 2 Correlation of sFlt-1 and VEGF-A with severity of illness

From: Time-course of sFlt-1 and VEGF-A release in neutropenic patients with sepsis and septic shock: a prospective study

  MASCC SOFA (Fever onset) SOFA (48 hours)
VEGF-A (fever onset) Rs = - 0.18
P = 0.31
Rs = - 0.21
P = 0.23
Rs = - 0.17
P = 0.33
VEGF-A (48 hours) Rs = - 0.43
P = 0.03
- Rs = 0.09
P = 0.66
sFlt-1 (Fever onset) Rs = - 0.42
P < 0.01
Rs = 0.33
P = 0.04
Rs = 0.32
P = 0.04
sFlt-1 (48 hours) Rs = - 0.11
P = 0.52
- Rs = 0.25
P = 0.16
  1. The Spearman's correlation coefficients (Rs) for sFlt-1 and VEGF-A measured at fever onset and after 48 hours with the severity of illness scores are shown. The correlation of the markers after 48 hours of fever onset with scores at the time of fever onset was not assessed.
