Table 4

Results from logistic regression model that evaluated the role of CRP and WBC (independent covariates) on the occurrence of LVSD in patients who had had an acute coronary event, after adjustment for several common confounders*.

Odds ratio95% confidence interval

Model 1: CRP (per mg/L)1.061.02–1.10
Model 2: WBC (per 1000 count)1.071.02–1.12

*Covariates also used in both models were age, sex, diagnosis of myocardial infarction, creatinine and troponin I levels at entry, systolic, and diastolic blood pressure levels at entry.
