Table 3 Association of baseline levels of individual metalloproteinaises (MMPs) with all-cause mortality

From: Association of circulating levels of MMP-8 with mortality from respiratory disease in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

MMP (ng/ml) Hazard ratio (95% CI) P
MMP-1 1.003 (0.99, 1.01) 0.3
MMP-2 1.0005 (0.99, 1.001) 0.7
MMP-3 0.999 (0.998, 1.000) 0.07
MMP-8 1.006 (1.002, 1.01) 0.003
MMP-9 1.005 (1.00, 1.001) 0.04
  1. Separate Cox proportional hazard regression analyses were carried out for each MMP with adjustment for age, sex and disease duration at baseline.
