Comparison of serum PCSK9 levels among patients with hepatocellular carcinoma versus those with cirrhosis or chronic liver disease without cirrhosis, demonstrating: (a) Logistic fit of HCC by PCSK9 model, with serum levels of PCSK9 in HCC patients being significantly higher than those in patients with cirrhosis or chronic liver disease (p-value =0.029); (b) Logistic fit of PCSK9 by HCC tumor diameter model, showing no correlation between these two parameters; (c) Logistic fit of Cirrhosis by PCSK9 model, with serum levels of PCSK9 in patients with cirrhosis being higher than those in patients without cirrhosis (p-value =0.048)
