From: Mechanistic study of the cause of decreased blood 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D in sepsis

Fig. 1

Sepsis patients in general displayed suppressed blood 1,25(OH)2D levels which were associated with disorders of the mechanisms that regulate 1α-hydroxylase. Blood samples from 20 age- and gender-matched healthy subjects and 79 sepsis patients were examined for the concentrations of IL-6 (a), 1,25(OH)2D (b), calcium (c), PTH (d), FGF-23 (e), Creatinine (f), IGF-1 (g), and GH (h). Except for the calcium that was measured by colorimetric assay, other molecules were measured by ELISA. *P < 0.05. **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001. t-test or Mann-Whitney U test
