Table 3

Lipid profile levels (mg/dl) of active TB and latent TB coinfected with HIV compared to without HIV infection.

Median (interquartile range) of lipid profile level values at baseline is shown. Comparison among the groups was determined using Wilcoxon Mann–Whitney test; value for the comparison between active TB groups with and without HIV; value for the comparison between latent TB groups with and without HIV.
