sIL-2R levels are associated with renal failure. (A) Serum levels of sIL-2R correlate with cystatin C (r = 0.603, p < 0.001, Spearman rank correlation test). (B) Box plots display that the ratio of sIL-2R/cystatin C did not differ between CLD patients without or with liver cirrhosis. (C) The ratio of sIL-2R/cystatin C correlated with the non-classical CD14+CD16+ monocytes (Spearman rank correlation test).
