Table 5 Association of low fetuin A/α 2HS-glycoprotein levels with 1-year mortality of patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis calculated by adjusted multiple logistic regression*

From: Human serum fetuin A/α2HS-glycoprotein level is associated with long-term survival in patients with alcoholic liver cirrhosis, comparison with the Child-Pugh and MELD scores
