Table 1 Hazard ratios for cardiovascular and overall mortality at 5 years follow-up in accordance to baseline values of YKL-40 in a representative group of the general population without known cardiovascular disease or diabetes

From: YKL-40 - an emerging biomarker in cardiovascular disease and diabetes

   HR (95% CI)   
Cardiovascular mortality P value Overall mortality p value
Unadjusted 2.16 (1.67-2.80) < 0.0001 2.29 (1.53-3.44) < 0.0001
Age- and sex-adjusted 1.75 (1.29-2.37) < 0.0001 1.99 (1.26-3.16) 0.003
Mutivariable model 1.57 (1.16-2.14) 0.004 1.57 (1.00-2.46) 0.049
  1. 1 SD increase in ln variable.
  2. N = 482, cardiovascular mortality events = 22, overall mortality events = 45.
  3. * Variables: hypertension, total cholesterol, smoking, hsCRP, NT-proBNP and UACR.
  4. Abbreviations: CI, confidence interval; HR, hazard ratio; hsCRP, high sensitive C-reactive protein; NT-proBNP, N-amino terminal fragment of the prohormone brain natriuretic peptide; UACR, urinary albumin/creatinine ratio.
