From: Diagnostic accuracy of tumor necrosis factor-alpha, interferon-gamma, interlukine-10 and adenosine deaminase 2 in differential diagnosis between tuberculous pleural effusion and malignant pleural effusion

Bio-parameter AUC Cut-off Sensitivity (%) Specificity (%) Accuracy (%)
TNF-α 0.976* 30.3 (ng/L) 83.0 97.0 90.0
IFN-γ 0.831# 103.65 (ng/L) 80.9 81.4 81.1
ADA2 0.844## 29.45 (U/L) 76.6 97.0 86.7
ADA 0.779 39.00 (U/L) 76.6 83.7 80.0
