  1. Five variables explained 43.6% of the variance in somatic disease burden in long-term OMT patients. SCL25 score alone explained a third of the variance. Total years in OMT was a negative predictive factor

  4. bSignificant bivariate variables not included in adjusted models: gender, amphetamine use, employment/studying
