Table 2 Determinants of hepatitis B viral infections among tuberculosis patients (n = 3537)

From: Impacts of hepatitis B and hepatitis C co-infection with tuberculosis, a prospective cohort study

  1. aCOR crude odds ratio
  2. bAOR adjusted odds ratio
  3. The predictors of hepatitis B viral infection among 3537 tuberculosis patients were presented. The binary logistic regression outputs for each predictor were presented using the adjusted odds ratio and P-values. Hepatitis B viral infection was associated with HIV, female sex, chronic illnesses, and problematic alcohol use
