Incidence rate ratio of coronary artery calcification between Japanese and white subjects

Incidence rate ratio (95% CI)p Value
Unadjusted model0.321 (0.150 to 0.690)<0.01
Model I0.262 (0.094 to 0.731)0.01
Model II0.376 (0.090 to 1.572)0.18
  • Unadjusted model took the follow-up time into account.

  • Model I: adjusted for age, systolic blood pressure, LDL-C, HDL-C, triglycerides, body mass index, diabetes, pack-years of smoking, and medication for hypertension.

  • Model II: further adjusted for total LCn3PUFAs in addition to model I.

  • HDL-C, high density lipoprotein cholesterol; LCn3PUFA, long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid; LDL-C, low density lipoprotein cholesterol.
