Table 2 Correlations between HCMV-specific IgG titer with levels of immune cells among ESRD patients

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

  1. Pearson correlation was applied to investigate the relationship between log transformed HCMV-specific IgG titer and immune cell levels, including percentages as well as absolute cell counts of naïve (TNAIVE), stem cell memory (TSCM), central memory (TCM), effector memory (TEM), terminally differentiated (TEMRA) subsets and three monocyte subsets (classical monocytes, intermediate monocytes, non-classical monocytes)
  2. NS non-significant, P value > 0.1
  3. *p value < 0.05
