Table 3 Multivariate Cox regression model for the risk of a time-dependent CV event among 232 patients

From: Receptor for advanced glycation end products Glycine 82 Serine polymorphism and risk of cardiovascular events in rheumatoid arthritis

Risk factor Coefficient (β) SE Wald χ2 Risk ratio 95% CI Corrected p value
Statin therapy -1.79 0.362 24.5 0.167 0.08–0.34 <0.0001
RA disease duration -0.203 0.038 28.3 0.816 0.76–0.88 <0.0001
  1. Backwards, stepwise Cox regression model, derived from significant univariate associations, including statin use, duration of arthritis and the dose of prednisone, the latter of which was not an independent predictor of outcome. CI, confidence interval; CV, cardiovascular; RA, rheumatoid arthritis.
