  1. 1 Non-stringent definition allows inter-laboratory disagreement for the Arg/Pro and the Pro/Pro genotypes; stringent definition includes only genotypes with complete agreement among the three laboratories (adapted from reference 1).
  2. 2 Disagreed: includes only subjects with an Arg/Arg genotype determined by at least one laboratory but with different results from the other laboratories; Agreed: includes only Arg/Arg subjects with complete agreement among laboratories; All-inclusive: includes any reported Arg/Arg genotype with or without agreement among laboratories or in isolation
  3. 3 OR adjusted for age and race.
