Multivariate predictors of left ventricular global longitudinal strain: patients receiving clozapine (n=100)

Standardised coefficient βp Value
Neutrophil count0.330.007
HDL-C level−0.270.02
  • Backward selection regression model using a p value cut-off of <0.1, R2=0.29.

  • Other variables included in the analysis and subsequently removed—body mass index, age, heart rate, duration of clozapine treatment, triglyceride level, HsCRP, smoking and diabetes.

  • HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HsCRP, high-sensitivity C reactive protein; NT-proBNP, N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide.
