From: Quality of life among post-menopausal women due to oxidative stress boosted by dysthymia and anxiety

  1. Data show Pearson correlation coefficient and p value, and multiple linear regression parameters using LPO levels as dependent variable and the subscale scores of WHOQoL-brief as independent variables; the model was adjusted by number of cigarettes consumed and hours of sleep by day and BMI as pro-oxidant life-style factors. R = 0.423, R2 = 0.179, p = 0.012
