Table 3 Adjusted relative risk for subclinical atherosclerosis according to strata of serum uric acid concentrations

From: Hyperuricemia and the risk for subclinical coronary atherosclerosis - data from a prospective observational cohort study

   Odds ratio for outcome
  Serum uric acid concentration, μmol/L [mg/dL] Agatston score >0 vs. Agatston score = 0 Agatston score >10 vs. Agatston score <10
Quartile of serum uric acida   
   Quartile 1 77-291 [1.3-4.9] 1 1
   Quartile 2 196-333 [3.3-5.6] 1.24 (0.78-1.97) 1.26 (0.72-2.22)
   Quartile 3 232-393 [3.9-6.6] 1.42 (0.9-2.24) 1.50 (0.87-2.58)
   Quartile 4 280-690 [4.7-11.6] 1.87 (1.19-2.93) 1.91 (1.12-3.26)
  1. Adjusted for the effects of age, gender, race, high- and low-density lipoproteins, triglycerides, smoking, blood pressure class, presence of metabolic syndrome, C-reactive protein, waist circumference, alcohol use, creatinine, and serum albumin concentration. No participants had diabetes or renal impairment. aMen and women were classified into quartiles by gender-specific cutoff numbers and were subsequently pooled.
