However, among patients who did receive brachytherapy, black and nonblack patients had a similar risk of death (adjusted hazard ratio
, 1.01; P = .83).
Table 2 shows the mutually adjusted hazard ratios
and their 95% confidence intervals, with and without excluding patients who died of breast cancer within 3 years of diabetes onset.
Those results were similar to the intent-to-treat findings: the adjusted hazard ratio
for death from prostate cancer in the [greater than or equal to]50 Gy radiotherapy group was 1.47 (95%CI 0.85-2.56) with an intermediate-risk group result of 1.66 (0.90, 3.08) and a low-risk group result of 0.80 (0.26, 2.49).
These rates translate to a circumcision effectiveness of 68% in the survival analysis, the adjusted hazard ratio
of HTV acquisition during the posttrial period was 0.3, while the circumcision effectiveness was 67%.
The cumulative number of episodes of acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) after 3 years were 12%, 15%, and 46% in the lower, middle, and upper tertiles of sodium intake, respectively (p = 0.001), and the upper tertile was associated with an adjusted hazard ratio
of 2.55 (p < 0.001).
The adjusted hazard ratio
for time to failure for the most physiologically challenging balance test was significantly higher among subjects with the highest vs.
HAART appears to protect against progression (adjusted hazard ratio
0.72, 95% CI 0.52-0.99).
33.91, adjusted hazard ratio
0.039) compared with the ICS/montelukast group.
Patterns were similar for full and for any breast-feeding In Cox regression analyses, the risk of not being exclusively breast-fed was reduced among infants born in hospitals with low compliance (adjusted hazard ratio
, 0.9) and more so among infants born in hospitals with high compliance (0.8) relative to infants born in non-baby-friendly hospitals.
After the researchers controlled for possible confounders, individuals who met at least three of these criteria had about a 52% lower risk of new-onset CVD (adjusted hazard ratio
, 0.48; 95% confidence interval, 0.40-0.59) and a 68% lower risk of CVD-related mortality (HR, 0.32; 95% CI, 0.22-0.47), said Gang Liu, PhD, of Harvard T.H.
The investigators found a significant association between ketorolac given during surgery and decreased incidence of distant metastasis (adjusted hazard ratio
, 0.59, 95% confidence interval, 0.37-0.96, P = .03).
77.1%; adjusted hazard ratio
0.98, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.85 - 1.13).
