Table 2 Serum PCT and CRP levels in study groups.

From: Serum procalcitonin and CRP levels in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: a case control study

  CONTROLS   NAFLD   P value
  (n 50) Focal Fatty liver (n3) Steatohepatitis (n20) Steatosis (n27)  
PCT 0.06 ± 0.01 0.03 ± 0.01 0.06 ± 0.01 0.04 ± 0.01 ns
CRP 2.90 ± 0.50 1.70 ± 0.70 5.20 ± 2.50* 7.50 ± 1.60* < 0.01
  1. Serum CRP levels were significantly higher in simple steatosis and steatohepatitis groups compared to healthy controls (*p < 0.01). There were no significant differences between groups in serum PCT levels.
