Receiver-operator characteristic (ROC) curve of Fas-ligand (FasL) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in relation to adverse outcome. Adverse outcome is defined as adverse neurological outcome at the 18-month assessment or death. a The AUC for FasL was 0.86. The FasL cutoff value of 45 pg/mL (dashed lines) predicted adverse outcomes with a sensitivity of 79.2% and a specificity of 82.5%. b The AUC for IL-6 was 0.90. The IL-6 cutoff value of 77 pg/mL (dashed lines) predicted adverse outcomes with a sensitivity of 79.2% and a specificity of 92.5%. c Using a combination of ranks for IL-6 and Fas-L, the sensitivity was 95.8% and specificity 85.7% in relation to outcome. The sum for ranking of IL-6 and Fas-L was used for the evaluation. The AUC for the sum for ranking was 0.94
