Elevated Circulating Angiogenic Progenitors and White Blood Cells Are Associated with Hypoxia-Inducible Angiogenic Growth Factors in Children with Sickle Cell Disease

Table 6

Multivariate linear regression showing relationship between Hemoglobin SS group, angiogenic growth factors, and WBC. Each angiogenic growth factor was strongly associated with the relationship between Hemoglobin SS and WBC. Significant reductions in the beta-coefficient (>25%) compared to the main exposure are marked with an asterisk (*).
