Table 8 Predictors of hepato-toxicity among tuberculosis patients (n = 3537)

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

Variables Ba SEb Sig. Hazard ratio 95.0% CI for Exp(B)
Lower Upper
HIV .809 .092 .000 2.245 1.873 2.689
Hepatitis B 1.984 .086 .000 7.272 6.149 8.599
Hepatitis C 1.178 .083 .000 3.247 2.758 3.821
Severity of tuberculosis .567 .083 .000 1.763 1.499 2.074
Chronic illness .361 .088 .000 1.435 1.208 1.705
  1. aB beta coefficient
  2. bSE standard error
  3. Cox regression outputs for the determinants of hepatotoxicity among 3537 tuberculosis patients were presented. The Hazard ratios with their corresponding P-values were presented for the predictors of hepatotoxicity among 3537 tuberculosis patients. Hepatotoxicity was associated with HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, severity of tuberculosis and chronic illnesses
