Table 3 The predictors of abnormal cervical cytology in women, (multivariate analysis)

From: Increased alpha-9 human papillomavirus species viral load in human immunodeficiency virus positive women

Variable OR 95% CI P-value
Species 6 HPV infection 5.04 2.15-12.3 <0.001
Species 7 HPV infection    
 None 1   <0.001
 Species 7 VL = 0.6 copies per cell (median) 3.11 1.70–5.71  
 Per unit increase in log copies per cell 1.67 1.18–2.36  
Species 9 HPV infection    <0.001
 None 1   
 Species 9 VL = 2.5 copies per cell (median) 6.19 3.81–10.10  
 Per unit increase in log copies per cell 1.62 1.24–2.12  
  1. Note: VL: viral load per cell, α6 HPV species is HPV-56; α7 HPV species are HPV-18, -39, -45 and -59; α9 HPV species are HPV-16, -31, -33, -35, -52 and -58.
