Table 4 Adjusted geometric means for C-reactive protein comparing offspring status and parental history of BEN

From: Offspring of parents with Balkan Endemic Nephropathy have higher C-reactive protein levels suggestive of inflammatory processes: a longitudinal study

  C-reactive protein (mg/dL)
Repeated measurement analysis
(200 participants, 349 observations)
  Adjusted geometric mean 5–95% confidence limit p-value
(F-test)
