IQR inter-quartile range, SCORE Systematic Coronary Risk Evaluation, Hrisk high-risk country, HDLc high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol, Lrisk low-risk country, mSCORE modified SCORE using a 1.5 multiplication factor, CVD cardiovascular disease, BP blood pressure, TC total cholesterol. Estimated risk age according to the cardiovascular risk age and the various vascular age models, relative risk, and absolute risk of cardiovascular disease in RA patients at baseline. Data are also shown separately for patients who did and did not experience CVD events during follow-up
