Correlation of admission testosterone levels with acute inflammatory markers (CRP and PCT) in males with CAP. Data are presented with scatterplots showing all values (blue), overlaid by linear fit lines (red). We used admission hormone metabolite levels and peak values of CRP and PCT. Correlation analyses were performed by Spearman’s rank correlation (rho; p-value). p < 0.05 is considered statistically significant; bold values indicate statistical significance. We used multivariate linear regression models to calculate regression coefficients (coef). CAP, community-acquired pneumonia; CRP, c-reactive protein; PCT, procalcitonin. *Multivariate model is adjusted for age and comorbidities (coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, neoplastic disease)
