Figure 1 Box plot of serum calprotectin levels among healthy controls, stable cirrhostics, and hospitalized cirrhotics with acute decompensation. The line across the box indicates the median value; the box contains the 25% to 75% interquartile range; and the whiskers represent the highest and the lower values. There were no differences in calprotectin levels between patients with acute decompensation and stable cirrhosis patients (P = 0.127). Significantly lower calprotectin levels were observed among healthy controls compared to stable cirrhosis (P < 0.001) and patients with acute decompensation (P < 0.001).
