Table 4 Association between Zn 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 Zinc concentration range (µg/l) No. of cancer / controls
Pancreatic cancer I 306.12-739.81 15/9
  II 747.62-847.10 8/16
  III 848.81-995.08 13/11
  IV 1002.72-4896.90 12/12
  1. I vs II: p = 0.082
  2. I vs III: p = 0.770
  3. I vs IV: p = 0.561
