From: Cardiovascular events in early RA are a result of inflammatory burden and traditional risk factors: a five year prospective study

Figure 1

A new CVE is potentiated by the inflammatory activity and cardiovascular risk factors. Estimated hazard ratio (HR) of a new cardiovascular event, (CVE), at a given time t during five years follow-up in patients with early rheumatoid arthritis (RA), taking inflammatory activity (erythrocyte sedimentation rate, ESR) at baseline (T0) and the level of triglycerides in consideration (median values as reference); A) without and B) with hypertension at baseline. The model also adjusts for gender and disease modifying antirheumatic (DMARD) treatment.
