Effect of RAS modifying drugs on pulmonary outcomes. The association of diabetes diagnosis and incidence of infectious, inflammatory or structural outcomes events when compared to non-diabetic patients was measured using Cox analysis in this same model (a). The same parameters were measured using patients vaccinated for influenza compared to those who were not vaccinated and for patients taking statins at baseline compared to those not taking statins (a).
