Serum Levels of Soluble ST2 and IL-10 Are Associated with Disease Severity in Patients with IgA Nephropathy

Figure 3

Correlation analysis of serum sST2 with the values of clinical parameters in IgAN patients. The potential correlations between serum sST2 and the values of clinical parameters were analyzed by Spearman correlation tests. Data shown are the mean concentration of individual subjects from two separate experiments. (a) Serum sST2 levels were correlated negatively with the values of eGFR. (b) Serum sST2 levels were correlated positively with the concentrations of 24-hour urinary proteins. (c) Serum sST2 levels were correlated negatively with serum calcium. ((d)-(e)) Serum sST2 levels were correlated positively with serum phosphorus and serum IgA, respectively.
