Table 2. Cox regression analysis of factors independently associated with new HCV and PTD occurring after kidney transplantationa

AHR for HCVAHR for PTD
a Data given as the number (% of total) or mean ± 1 SD. Dates for kidney transplant recipients were January 1, 1996, through July 31, 2000, censored at 3 y of follow-up. AHR, adjusted hazard ratio; BMI, body mass index.
