Table 4 Values of albumin levels according to predefined groups

From: Differences in routine laboratory parameters related to cachexia between patients with hematological diseases and patients with solid tumors or heart failure – is there only one cachexia?

  All Cachectic Non-cachectic p-value (C vs. NC)
All 38.31 (+/−6.5) 34.95 (+/−6.5) 39.85 (+/−5.8) p = 0.0002*
Hematological 40.95 (+/−6.1) 38.05 (+/−6.1) 42.04 (+/−5.2) p = 0.019*
Non-hematological 36.01 (+/−6.2) 32.83 (+/−6.1) 37.85 (+/−5.7) p = 0.004*
p-value (H vs. NH) p = 0.0001* p = 0.02* p = 0.0001*  
  1. Abbreviations H = hematological, NH = non-hematological, C = cachectic, NC = non-cachectic. Values of albumin levels are in g/l. *statistically significant.
