Table 3 Subgroup characteristics and Pearson correlation coefficients for ln EndoCab concentration versus linear growth prior to serum sample collection, n = 103

From: Plasma endotoxin core antibody concentration and linear growth are unrelated in rural Malawian children aged 2–5 years

  HAZ (mean ± SD) r P value Δ HAZa (mean ± SD) r P value
At sampling −3.01 ± 0.95 −0.068 0.49
3 months prior −3.01 ± 1.97 −0.017 0.54 0.004 ± 0.36 −0.017 0.86
6 months prior −3.04 ± 1.07 0.010 0.92 0.04 ± 0.44 −0.17 0.09
  1. r, Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient for HAZ or Δ HAZ versus ln EndoCab.
  2. aChange in HAZ from time of serum sampling compared to 3 or 6 months prior.
