Table 1 Association between Se serum concentration and risk of pancreatic cancer

From: Serum concentrations of Cu, Se, Fe and Zn in patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer

Cancer site Quartile Selenium concentration range (µg/l) No. of cancer / controls
Pancreatic cancer I 29.87-56.00 22/2
  II 56.43-68.47 11/13
  III 68.57-80.49 11/13
  IV 80.73-149.22 4/20
  1. I vs II: p=0.013. OR = 13.000
  2. I vs III: p=0.013. OR = 13.000
  3. I vs IV, p< 0.0001, OR = 55.000
