Table 3 Linear regression analyses of baseline values and percent changes in clinical factors affecting the percent change in LDL-C levels

From: Serum CETP status is independently associated with reduction rates in LDL-C in pitavastatin-treated diabetic patients and possible involvement of LXR in its association

  4. dBMI was excluded from multivariate analysis, since colinearity between BMI and body weight was found
  5. eLDL-C and sd LDL-C were excluded from multivariate analysis, since colinearity among TC, LDL-C and sd LDL-C was found
  6. fApoA-I was excluded from multivariate analysis, since colinearity between HDL-C and ApoA-I was found
