Table 2 Distributions of iron biomarkers in CSF at the baseline visit by sex [median value (interquartile range, IQR)]

From: Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers of iron status are associated with CSF viral load, antiretroviral therapy, and demographic factors in HIV-infected adults

CSF biomarker (units) Men (N = 325) Women (N = 78) p -value
Iron (µg/dL) 3.25 (1.60, 5.63) 2.84 (1.60, 5.88) n.s.
Transferrin (µg/mL) 18.07 (10.80, 28.74) 14.47 (6.99, 24.03) 0.01
H-ferritin (ng/mL) 2.94 (1.69, 4.55) 1.72 (0.61, 3.05) <0.0001
  1. µg/dL micrograms per deciliter, µg/mL micrograms per milliliter, ng/mL nanograms per milliliter
  2. p-values <0.05 (italics) are statistically significant
