Fig. 2

Receiver operating characteristic curves of inflammatory anemia-associated parameters and the SOFA score for predicting 28-day mortality. EPO, erythropoietin; IL-6, interleukin-6; RDW, red blood cell distribution width; SOFA, Sequential Organ Failure Assessment; sTfR, soluble transferrin receptor. The AUCs of plasma EPO (0.794), ferritin (0.720), IL-6 (0.757), sTfR/log ferritin (0.747) and the RDW (0.718) were lower than the SOFA score (0.840) (all P < 0.05), but plasma hepcidin (0.808) had an AUC similar to the SOFA score (P = 0.28)
