For the PROCARDIS Consortium: Genetic Variants Associated with Lp Lipoprotein Level and HEART DISEASE Genomewide association studies have identified many novel susceptibility loci for coronary artery disease,1-4 nonetheless it is likely that only common variants can be detected in this true way.5,6 Moreover, loci that are identified by using genomewide association studies explain only handful of the expected contribution to the chance of heart disease.
Analysis of the principal end point was performed according to the intention-to-treat principle. The time to regional recurrence was thought as the number of times from randomization to regional recurrence as a first event. Data had been censored during distant recurrence, last contact, or death, whichever occurred first. General survival was defined as the time to loss of life from any cause. The difference in the 10-year local-recurrence prices was calculated with a two-sided 95 percent self-confidence interval through the Greenwood formula. The noninferiority hypothesis was examined with the use of a z-check offset by the noninferiority margin. We used the log-rank test to compare overall survival in both groups, and we used Cox proportional-hazards models to evaluate the consistency of treatment effects by tests for interactions between the treatment group and subgroups of interest.
