Table 4 Serum levels of several inflammatory markers

From: Acquired immunological imbalance after surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass due to epigenetic over-activation of PU.1/M-CSF

Inflammatory marker Baseline 3 months after CPB
Mean SD Mean SD
C reactive protein (pg/ml) 224 587 1858* 2588
Alpha-2-macroglobulin (pg/ml) 95 69 363 921
Haptoglobin (pg/ml) 73 111 191 314
Serum amyloid P component (pg/ml) 28 30 64 80
  1. Serum levels of inflammatory were not elevated 3 months after CPB except C-reactive protein
  2. * Indicate data points which were significantly different when compared vs baseline in post hoc analysis. There was a significant increase in the percentage of expression of serum CRP at t0 vs t+3m (p < 0.042)
