From: Early atherosclerosis in systemic sclerosis and its relation to disease or traditional risk factors

Group (controls, patients) Ba 95% confidence interval P value
Unadjusted/crude 0.101 -0.007, 0.209 0.067
Adjustedb 0.042 -0.043, 0.128 0.328
Adjustedc 0.030 -0.054, 0.114 0.474
  1. aB is the regression coefficient. In the adjusted models, corrections were made for the confounders bage, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol or cage, HDL cholesterol, and history of macrovascular disease; a total of 66 patients and controls were available for this analysis.
