Table 1 Baseline demographic, clinical and laboratory measurements stratified by HCMV-specific IgG titer

From: Anti-cytomegalovirus IgG antibody titer is positively associated with advanced T cell differentiation and coronary artery disease in end-stage renal disease

  1. Demographic and clinic data were compared between groups of CMV-IgG quintiles in 408 ESRD patients. Quintile cut-offs were derived from HCMV-IgG levels of healthy controls. Values were expressed as mean (SD)
  2. nPCR normalized protein catabolic rate
  3. *p value < 0.05
