Table 3 Association between CETP activity and PCSK9 levels

From: Circulating PCSK9 levels and CETP plasma activity are independently associated in patients with metabolic diseases

Adjusted for CETP
Beta P R 2
PCSK9
 Model 1: crude (no adjustment) 0.253 <0.0001 0.064
 Model 2: age, gender and BMI 0.268 <0.0001 0.085
 Model 3: model 2 + LDL-C, TG, and Glu 0.107 0.001 0.582
 Model 4: model 3 + SBP and LCAT 0.107 0.004 0.624
 Model 5: model 4 + MetS 0.110 0.003 0.624
  1. Linear regression analysis results are displayed as beta coefficients with the P and R 2 values for each model. CETP was the dependent variable
  2. BMI body mass index, LDL-C LDL cholesterol, TG triglycerides, Glu glucose, SBP systolic blood pressure, LCAT lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase, MetS metabolic syndrome
