A RR of ≥1.00 indicates a higher or lower risk for ischemic heart disease, respectively. Control subjects are from the Framingham Heart Study.

*

P < 0.05 compared with reference risk values for transplant recipients;

too few patients were available to reliably assess this risk;

reference risks for cholesterol levels and blood pressure are indicated by 1.00.
