A Principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) plot of cachexia and non-cachexia patient groups based on plasma metabolomic profiles (Bray–Curtis distance) (p = 0.026, r = 0.110, ANOSIM). B Differentially abundant metabolite classes (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, Wilcoxon rank-sum test). Orange: higher abundance in cachexia; green: lower abundance in cachexia group. C Plasma amino acids with significant differences between cachexia and non-cachexia patient groups (p < 0.05, Student’s t-test).
