Figure 2 Plasma concentration of dephosphorylated-uncarboxylated matrix Gla-protein in patients under study. Patients with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) exhibited significantly higher levels as compared to the patients without SIBO (9.5 μg/L vs 4.2 μg/L; P = 0.02). Median values are represented by boxplot internal lines and ranges by whiskers. dp-ucMGP: Dephosphorylated-uncarboxylated matrix Gla-protein.
