Table 2 Association between Cu 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 Copper concentration range (µg/l) No. of cancer / controls
Pancreatic cancer I 785.27-969.05 3/21
  II 977.76-1119.26 10/14
  III 1120.26-1363.22 12/12
  IV 1395.82-2420.82 23/1
  1. II vs I: p = 0.049, OR = 5.000
  2. III vs I: p = 0.0114, OR = 7.000
  3. IV vs I: p< 0.0001, OR = 161.000
