From: “Does the Salmonella Genomic Island 1 (SGI1) confer invasiveness properties to human isolates?”

Variables Immmunosuppressiona p-valuec
Yes (n = 17) No (n = 83)
Age (years) 54.2 (35.7) 9.7 (54.4) p = 0.02
Invasive infection 7 (41.2) 8 (9.6) p = 0.003
Bacteremia 5 (29.4) 7 (8.4) p = 0.03
Sepsis 6 (35.3) 9 (10.8) p = 0.02
Fever or hypothermia 7 (50.0) 51 (63.0) p = 0.39

  1. aData are presented as median (interquartile range (IQR) for age or number of patients n (%)
  2. bMissing refers to data not available in medical records
  3. cFisher’s exact test and Kruskal-Wallis test were performed as appropriate and p-values <0.05 were considered statistically significant
  4. Number italicized were statically significant
