From: Osteoprotegerin and coronary artery disease in type 2 diabetic patients with microalbuminuria

Parameter OR 95% CI p-value
Study population as a whole (n = 200) Coronary atherosclerosis
   Unadjusted OPG (2rd tertile vs. 1st) 2.39 1.09-5.25 0.03
   Unadjusted OPG (3rd tertile vs. 1st) 3.36 1.54-7.34 0.002
   Adjusted OPG (2rd tertile vs. 1st) 2.50 1.08-5.78 0.032
   Adjusted OPG (3rd tertile vs. 1st) 2.62 1.12-6.11 0.0026
