Title: Expressions of multiple inflammation markers in the patients with COVID-19 and their clinical values
Abstract: Objective: To explore the expressions of multiple inflammation markers in the patients with COVID-19 and their clinical values and to provide theoretical basis for clinical diagnosis and treatment Methods: A total of 164 patients diagnosed with COVID-19 and admitted to Guangzhou Eighth People's Hospital from January to February 2020 were selected as the research group and divided into three groups (ordinary severe and critically severe pneumonia) according to the disease severity Meanwhile 66 non-infected patients during the same period were selected as negative control group The expressions of white blood cell (WBC) lymphocyte (LYM) C-reactive protein (CRP) serum amyloid A protein (SAA) and procalcitonin (PCT) were retrospective studied and compared between groups The diagnostic values of WBC CRP SAA and the combination of these three markers in all patients with COVID-19 and in different severity groups were analyzed by receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve Results: Compared with control group [WBC count:8 13(6 519 42)109/L LYM count:2 00(1 282 43)109/L] WBC count [4 94(4 05 6 67) 109/L] and LYM count [1 33(0 94 1 96) 109/L] of COVID-19 patients were significantly reduced (Z=-7 435 P<0 01;Z=-4 906 P<0 01) Compared with the control group [CRP: 1 36 (0 57~5 67) mg/ml;SAA:4 98 (4 80-15 75) mg/ml] CRP [7 93 (2 45-23 98) mg/ml] and SAA [34 13 (4 83-198 40) mg/ml] were increased in research group (Z=-5 72 P<0 01;Z=-4 166 P<0 01) PCT in the control group and the research group were 0 100 0(0 030 6-0 100 0)ng/ml and 0 044 5(0 031 6-0 077 0)ng/ml respectively There was no statistical difference between two groups (Z=-1 451 P=0 147) The areas under the receiver operator characteristic curve (AUC) of WBC CRP and SAA in patients with COVID-19 were 0 814 0 742 0 673 respectively (P<0 01) while the AUC of the combination of three indexes for COVID-19 diagnosis was 0 882 with 83 33%(55/66) specificity and 84 76% (139/164) sensitivity P<0 01 The AUCs of WBC CRP and SAA for predicting severe and critically severe COVID-19 were 0 799 0 779 and 0 886 respectively (P<0 01) The AUC of the combination of three indexes for the diagnosis of severe and critically severe COVID-19 was 0 924 with 78 67% (118/150) specificity and 14/14 sensitivity (P<0 01) Conclusion: Combining detection of WBC CRP and SAA can improve the specificity and sensitivity of COVID-19 diagnosis with a high diagnostic value for severe and critically severe COVID-19
