From: Self-perceived quality of life predicts mortality risk better than a multi-biomarker panel, but the combination of both does best

Figure 2

Receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curves for mortality risk predicted by subjective health measures and covariates vs. multi-biomarker panel. The Cox model including subjective health measures and covariates incorporated age, gender, self-rated health, PCS-12, MCS-12, civil status, educational level, occupational status, equalized income, smoking status, alcohol consumption, physical activity, food consumption, waist circumference, previous history of hypertension, myocardial infarction, stroke, and diabetes mellitus vs. a multi-biomarker panel including age, gender, high sensitive C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, glycated hemoglobin, total cholesterol, triglycerides, glomerular filtration rate, albumin, gamma glutamyltransferase, thyrotropin, and insulin-like growth factor-I.
