Table 3 Comparison of the AFP levels among the studied groups

From: Interleukin-18 polymorphism as a diagnostic tumor marker for hepatocellular carcinoma in patients with hepatitis C-related cirrhosis

  Mean ± SD Test of sig.  
Control group (N = 20) 2.87 ± 1.25 KW = 36.485
P < 0.001*
 
Cirrhosis group (N = 37) 10.12 ± 15.16 P = 0.345
HCC group (N = 33) 345.67 ± 504.25 p1 < 0.001*
p2 < 0.001*
  1. This table shows that AFP is highly significant in the HCC group than the cirrhosis and control groups (P < 0.001)
  2. KW Kruskal-Wallis test, P intergroup probability, p1 probability in relation to the control group, p2 probability in relation to the cirrhosis group
