... All analyses were adjusted for age, race, and pay grade, but only in group B were there sufficient Marines to adjust also for service branch. There were no statistically significant differences in all-cause mortality between Project SHAD participants and controls, although in group B the hazard ratio (HR)
From page 40...
... In group B, the hazard ratios associated with race and pay grade are no longer statistically significant. Table 9-5 shows the results of proportional hazards ratio analyses of selected cause-specific mortality end points for only subjects with SSNs.

... Finally, comparing all Project SHAD participants versus all controls, heart disease deaths showed a statistically significant increase. Standardized Mortality Ratios As explained in Chapter 8, standardized mortality ratios (SMRs)

NOTE: Statistically significant hazard ratios are in bold. aGroup A = participants potentially exposed only to BG or MAA; group B = participants potentially exposed only to TOF; group C = par ticipants potentially exposed to any active chemical or biological agent; group D = participants potentially exposed only to simulants and not in groups A or B
