in acute liver failure significantly correlated with fatal outcome and might be used with other parameters to determine prognosis
constitutional     --over  
during the hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome acute phase were significantly higher in patients than during the convalescent stage and the levels in the healthy controls

in monocytes of active Crohn disease (CD) or ulcerative colitis (UC), associated with increased macrophage activation

Variant & Polymorphism
Candidate gene
  • soluble CD163 may be a potential biomarker for the severity of diabetic polyneuropathy
  • soluble CD163 values were significantly higher in bone marrow samples than in the matched blood samples, and is a a novel biomarker in multiple myeloma
  • may have a role as a biomarker of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) activity suggesting that resident macrophages are important for joint destruction
  • Therapy target
