  1. a Analyses were conditioned on age, hormone use for more than two years, and diabetes mellitus b Test for interactions with variables used for selection were designed to test if the terms for the two (two level covariate) or four (three level covariate) extra combined categories were different from zero in a model containing the main effect of genotype and covariate. For medium potency estrogen variables the test was carried out comparing ever use with never use of any medium potency estrogens.
