  • *% increase in AUC = (AUC model 2 − AUC model 1)/(AUC model 1) ×100.

  • †Each variable was added separately to model 1. The AUC of each row is that of the variable and model 1 only.

  • ‡The combined change of the AUC for the traditional lipids (total, HDL, non–HDL, and LDL cholesterol and triglyceride) or apolipoproteins (apoAI, apoB, and apoB-to-apoAI ratio).

  • §The combined change of the AUC for the traditional lipids and apolipoproteins.
