Table 1: The mean serum values (X ± SEM, SEM = Standard Error Mean) for c-iPTH and CT in non/hemodyalized patients.
c-iPTH (mU/mL) | CT (pmoL/L) | (r: y = ax + b) correlation | |
Patients not on HD (X_{1}) | 54.15 ± 6.23 | 89.65 ± 19.48 | (-0.14: -04.x + 107.65) |
Patients on HD (X_{2}) | 50.58 ± 5.79 | 31.33 ± 7.54 | |
σ_{x1-x2} (Z) = NS | Z = 3.60 SEM (p = 0.003) | (-0.32: -0.42x + 52.65) | |
Total | 53.11 ± 4.98 | 62.58 ± 10.68 |
Z = statistical significance of the difference (σ_{X1-X2}) between two mean values (Z presented in SEM)). The ratio r = coefficient of correlation (interrelationship between the each value for CT and c-iPTH).
