Figure 1

Incidence of type 2 diabetes over nine years in subjects with normal glucose tolerance according to baseline quartiles of fibrinolytic variables. The number of cases in each quartile for tPA activity was 7, 4, 3 and 1. Corresponding numbers for tPA antigen was 0, 1, 2 and 12 and for PAI-1 activity 2, 1, 3 and 9, respectively. P values for X2 (linear by linear association) were 0.026 for tPA activity, <0,001 for tPA antigen and 0,007 for PAI-1 activity.
