Table 3 Multiple stepwise regression analysis of resistin (dependent variable) and demographic and disease-related variables (independent variables)

From: Role of resistin as a marker of inflammation in systemic lupus erythematosus

  Resistin (ng/mL)
  11.155   
  β SE P value
Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, mm/hour 0.044 0.012 0.001
S-creatinine, μmol/L 0.035 0.008 <0.001
Complement factor C3, g/L -2.915 1.023 0.005
Glucocorticosteroid current dose, mg/day 0.127 0.051 0.014
High-density lipoprotein, mmol/L -1.438 0.580 0.014
Bone mineral density radius, g/cm2 -7.133 3.156 0.026
R 2 0.42   
  1. The regression equation of resistin (ng/mL) = 11.155 + 0.044 × erythrocyte sedimentation rate (mm/hour) + 0.035 × S-creatinine (μmol/L) - 2.915 × C3 (g/L) + 0.127 × current steroid dose (mg/day) - 1.438 × high-density lipoprotein (mmol/L) - 7.133 × bone mineral density radius (g/cm2). Beta values are unstandardized regression coefficients. R2 is equal to the variance explained in the model. SE, standard error.
