Table 5 A) multiple linear regression modelling the relationship with RDW. B) Binary regression relationship between CV events and RDW

From: Methotrexate therapy impacts on red cell distribution width and its predictive value for cardiovascular events in patients with rheumatoid arthritis

A: Multiple linear regression B: Binary regression
Dependent variable: RDW at follow up CV-Event
  p 95% CI MTX   p 95%CI
MTX < 0,001 0,290–0,818 no RDW follow up 0,018 0,491–0,935
Age, y follow up < 0,001 0,011–0,031 yes RDW follow up 0,511 0,624–1,247
Hb, g/l follow up < 0,001 −0,057–−0,039
