Figure 3 Linear correlation of plasma CD163 levels with disease severity markers in acute-on-chronic hepatitis B liver failure patients. A-C: Plasma CD163 was positively correlated with model of end stage liver disease (MELD) score, hepatitis B virus (HBV)-DNA and negatively correlated with prothrombin activity (PTA); D: There was no correlation between plasma CD163 levels and total bilirubin (TBIL); E: In acute-on-chronic hepatitis B liver failure (ACHBLF) patients, non-survivors had elevated plasma CD163 levels compared with survivors.
