From: Association of vitamin D deficiency with hepatitis B virus - related liver diseases

Variables Univariate analysis Multivariate analysis
P value P value Coefficient β
Age (continuous) 0.47 0.44 −0.07
Gender (male vs. female) 0.4 0.87 −0.49
HBeAg (positive vs. negative) 0.105 0.11 5.26
ALT levels (continuous) 0.08 0.51 0.008
HCC vs. non-HCC 0.019 0.13 7.5

HBV-DNA (log10 copies/ml, continuous) <0.0001 0.0004 −1.9
  1. Univariate analysis and multivariate linear regression model for independent factors were used to correlate vitamin D levels with clinical parameters. HBeAg Hepatitis B envelope antigen, ALT alanine amino transferase, HCC hepatocellular carcinoma
