  • Summary of the LDX (n=162) and CardioChek (n=87) subject population demographics and laboratory and POCT TC:HDL-C ratio data used to calculate the CVD risk scores.

  • BMI data was missing for 17 patients in the CardioChek group.

  • BMI, Body Mass Index; CVD, cardiovascular disease; POCT, point-of-care testing; TC, total cholesterol.
