Data are adjusted mean ± SD or geometrical mean (95% CI for the mean) for variables with skewed distribution. asignificant differences between groups in ANCOVA with adjustment for baseline values.
Shorter duration of inflammation—CRP level less than 10 mg/L at the time of hospital discharge, longer duration of inflammation—CRP level higher than 10 mg/L at the time of hospital discharge.
