The study revealed superior cardiac risk information by identifying the top 5% of CAD at the highest risk of MI with a hazard ratio of 5.5. The data showed an annual average of 18.2% of significant CAD patients with all three biomarkers elevated experienced a myocardial infarction or death, compared to only 2.45% of significant CAD patients with all biomarkers normal. The multiple biomarker model adds markedly to traditional risk-prediction by significantly improving C-statistics from 0.695 for base model to 0.750, distinguishing high risk from low risk subjects.
