Mean concentrations, standard deviation and P values of markers of iron metabolism and CD+4T cell count in tests and controls
Parameters Tests n=80 Controls n=50 P value
Mean ± SD Mean ± SD
CD+4 T cells/μl 319.6 ± 22 951.5 ± 57 <0.0001*
Serum Iron (μmol/l) 35.3 ± 0.8 11.8 ± 0.9 <0.001*
TIBC (μmol/l) 58.5 ± 2.2 45.2 ± 2.4 <0.001*
Transferrin Saturation (%) 68.0 ± 3.3 27.7 ± 2.2 <0.0001*

Values were expressed as mean ± standard deviation (SD).

P values <0.05 is significant.

*P denotes statistically significant value.
