From: Reduced levels of hydroxylated, polyunsaturated ultra long-chain fatty acids in the serum of colorectal cancer patients: implications for early screening and detection

Figure 6

Results of triple-quadrupole multiple reaction monitoring analysis of the Chiba validation sample set. (A) Scatter plots of the concentrations of hydroxylated polyunsaturated ultra long-chain fatty acids (hPULCFAs) 446, 448 and 450 expressed as [13C1]-cholic acid equivalents in asymptomatic normal controls, and pre-treatment colorectal cancer patients, (B) receiver operating curve (ROC) analysis based upon the corresponding scatter plots in (A). Grey dotted lines indicate the 95% confidence interval. (C) Bar charts of the average concentration equivalents of hPULCFAs by disease stage. Error bars represent standard errors of the mean. (D) ROC analysis by disease stage.
