  • B indicates that the unstandardised partial regression coefficient for 1 unit increased.

  • apoA, apolipoprotein A; apoB, apolipoprotein B; B, coefficient; CHD, coronary heart disease; GGT, γ-glutamyl transpeptidase; HCY, homocysteine; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; ln, logarithm transformed; Lp(a), lipoprotein(a); TBil, total bilirubin; TC, total cholesterol; UA, uric acid.

  • ORs for continuous variables=OR for an increase of 1 unit except age, for which OR is for an increase of 10 units.
