Table 3 Cut-off value of A2M, VDBP and ApoAI to predict liver fibrosis§

From: Novel biomarkers predict liver fibrosis in hepatitis C patients: alpha 2 macroglobulin, vitamin D binding protein and apolipoprotein AI

A2M <4.3 4.3-7.2 7.2-13.0 >13.0
Score 0 1 2 3
VDBP >1.2 0.6-1.2 <0.6  
Score 0 1 2  
ApoAI >2.0 1.1-2.0 <1.1  
Score 0 1 2  
  1. §The measuring unit is mg/mL. In this algorithm of three biomarkers, combining score from 0 to 3 present normal (F0/F1); score from 4 to 7 present liver fibrosis (F2-F4). A2M, alpha 2 macroglobulin; VDBP, vitamin D binding protein; ApoAI, apolipoprotien AI.
