From: Postchallenge responses of nitrotyrosine and TNF-alpha during 75-g oral glucose tolerance test are associated with the presence of coronary artery diseases in patients with prediabetes

Figure 3

Box and whisker plots of PG, TNF-α, IL-6 and nitrotyrosine levels at 2-hr after 75 g-OGTT. Each plot indicates the median (middle bar in rectangle), 10th (bottom of bar), 25th (bottom of rectangle), 75th (top of rectangle), and 90th centiles (top of bar) in patients categorized by the presence of CAD and GT status. Patients with CAD and AbnGT have significantly higher postchallenge TNF-α and nitrotyrosine levels at 2-hr compared to those without CAD, whereas IL-6 and glucose concentrations are not significantly different either in patients with NGT or AbnGT. *p < 0.05 by Kruskal-Wallis test followed by Mann- Whitney U test with Bonferroni correction.
