Correlation analysis of lipid analytes or metabolic indicators for CAP d1 through f2 with CRP and PCT. Y-axis values correspond to Pearson’s rho; significance of p values (Mann–Whitney U test) is indicated by the fill color of the circles. a 111 lipid analytes measured with the MetIDQ p180 kits. b lysopc; c PC; d SM; e ceramides (measured with targeted assays); f AC; and g metabolic indicators. Metabolite: AC, acylcaritines; Cer, ceramides; lysoPC, lysophosphatidylcholines; PC, phosphatidylcholines; SM, sphingomyelins
