|Crude and adjusted relative risk of plasma TNF-α for incident fractures|
|Hazard ratio and 95% CI associated to 5 pg/mL increase in plasma TNF-α for incident fractures|
|Crude||1.62 (1.05-2.50), P = 0.03|
|Age||1.64 (1.06-2.56), P = 0.03|
|Intact PTH||1.55 (1.03-2.35), P = 0.04|
|Sex||1.64 (1.06-2.54), P = 0.03|
|Previous fractures||1.61 (1.01-2.57), P = 0.04|
|Previous transplants||1.59 (1.05-2.40), P = 0.03|
|Risk Score||1.60 (1.04-2.45), P = 0.03|
Plasma TNF-α data were adjusted in bivariate Cox models including TNF-α and each risk factor listed. The latter factors were used to compute the risk score (see methods).
