Table 4 Sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy of combined TCA, LCA, and GCDCA to distinguish viral hepatitis group from NAFLD group

From: The role of serum bile acid profile in differentiation between nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and chronic viral hepatitis

Viral hepatitis (group 2) versus NAFLD (group 3)
  Sensitivity Specificity PPV NPV
TCA + LCA + GCDCA 70.55 94.87 98.1 46.2
  1. AUC area under a curve, p value probability value, CI confidence intervals, NPV negative predictive value, PPV positive predictive value, TCA taurocholic acid, LCA lithocholic acid, GCDCA glycochenodeoxycholic acid
  2. *Statistically significant at p < 0.05
