Linking CD11b+ Dendritic Cells and Natural Killer T Cells to Plaque Inflammation in Atherosclerosis

Table 5

Coefficient of determination () values for each of the plaque variables calculated from a multiple linear regression model with all the risk factors and blood parameters as independent variables ( plaque and blood samples). This is the amount of variance in the outcome (plaque variable) that can be explained by all the risk factors and blood variables together.
