The association between body mass index and efficacy and safety endpoints. The solid lines represent the incidence ratio (per 100 person-years) at each body mass index interval. The dashed lines represent the upper and lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval. The bars represent the distribution of body mass index values. The P values are for unadjusted trends.
