Comparisons of serum sCD36 and oxLDL levels between patients with CLD-C and NHCs. (a) The serum sCD36 levels were significantly higher in obese patients with CLD-C than in NHCs. Obese patients also had significantly higher serum sCD36 levels than non-obese patients. (b) The serum oxLDL levels were similarly higher in obese patients than in NHCs. However, no significant difference in the serum oxLDL level was found between obese and non-obese patients.
