  1. All parameters are represented as median with interquartile range (25%–75%) of the fold change of the studied groups, the data were analyzed by Mann-Whitney U test
  2. p value bearing (a) initial is significantly different comparing with control group
  3. p value bearing (b) initial is significantly different comparing with HCV group
  4. p value bearing (c) initial is significantly different comparing with cirrhotic group
  5. p value bearing (#) initial is significantly different comparing with CLD group
  6. 1 initialp value < 0.05 is significant, 2 initialp value < 0.01 is highly significant
