From: Erythrocyte membrane fatty acid profile and saturation index in gallbladder carcinogenesis: a case-control study

Fatty acid Cancer (n = 50) Gallstones (n = 50) Test value respective P value

C 14:0 Myristic Acid 3.5 ± 3.0 (0–10.1) 3.8 ± 3.6 (0–11.1) t = 0.45 F = 0.21 0.64, 0.65
C 16:0 Palmitic Acid 8.6 ± 5.0 (0–16.4) 9.4 ± 5.8 (0–19.6) t = 0.77 F = 0.59 0.44, 0.44
C 16:1 Palmitoleic Acid 2.05 ± 2.7 (0–8.4) 3.6 ± 9.0 (0–47.0) t = 1.22 F = 1.49 0. 22, 0. 22
C 18:0 Stearic Acid 23.6 ± 23.0 (0–76.0) 45.57 ± 24.1 (0–90.8) t = 4.65 F = 21.6 0. 000, 0. 0000
C 18:1 Oleic Acid 24.2 ± 21.6 (0–92.8) 19.8 ± 14.1 (0–35.2) t = 1.2 F = 1.4 0. 22, 0. 22
C 20:4 Arachidonic Acid 9.08 ± 16.6 (0–80.0) 24.3 ± 28.2 (0–82.12) t = 3.2 F = 10.74 0. 001, 0. 0014
Saturation Index 0.08 ± 1.2 (0–4.4) 2.0 ± 1.8 (0–8.5) t = 3.45 F = 11.9 0. 001, 0. 0009
