Table 2: Coefficients of correlation between the assays as performed on serum samples of non-smokers and smokers. For non-smokers the threshold value for a statistical significant correlation of p<0.05 is r=0.396, and for a statistical significance of p<0.01 this value is 0.505. For smokers these threshold values are r=0.413 and r=0.526, respectively.
