ESRCRPDiastolic BPLVMa-CMV(IgG)
ESR, erythrocyte sedimentation rate; CRP, C reactive protein; BP, blood pressure; LVM, left ventricular mass; a-CMV, anticytomegalovirus.
Spearman rank correlation (rs values shown in table).
*p = 0.02 (pcorr = 0.1); †p = 0.008 (pcorr = 0.04); ‡p<0.0001 (pcorr = 0.0005).
p Values for correlation of anti-CK18 IgG with other markers are shown uncorrected and corrected for multiple testing (Bonferroni procedure).
