From: Clinical and epidemiological characteristics of individuals resistant to M. tuberculosis infection in a longitudinal TB household contact study in Kampala, Uganda

  1. PTST- = Persistently negative tuberculin skin test; TSTC = Tuberculin skin test converter; TST + = tuberculin skin test positive at baseline; CI = confidence interval. Univariate model results show results for each variable one at a time, while the multivariable model includes all variables. Model parameterized as logit(Pr(y ≤ j)) = α + β x for j = 1 (PTST-), 2 (TSTC). Each OR shows the odds or PTST vs TSTC and also TSTC vs TST + .
