Event-free survival curves for all-cause death in patients with cardiovascular disease. Unadjusted cumulative event rates for the primary endpoint (all-cause death) were estimated using the Kaplan–Meier method and compared between the groups using the log-rank test. We defined cut-offs as the median levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids [dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid (DGLA), 28.5 μg/ml; arachidonic acid (AA), 162.0 μg/ml; eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), 46.1 μg/ml; docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), 123.2 μg/ml; DGLA/AA, 0.175; EPA/AA, 0.29]
