From: Induction with interleukin-2 antagonist for transplantation of kidneys from older deceased donors: an observational study

  Univariable Multivariable
  OR 95% CI P OR 95% CI P
IL-2 minus 7.98 2.84 to 22.41 < 0.001 8.04 2.77 to 23.25 < 0.001
Any HLA-DR mismatch 2.18 0.86 to 5.52 0.1 2.45 0.92 to 6.57 ns
CMV-positive recipient 0.38 0.15 to 0.94 0.04 0.59 0.22 to 1.58 ns
Recipient age 0.99 0.96 to 1.03 0.59 0.99 0.95 to 1.02 ns
Recipient gender (male) 1.55 0.55 to 4.37 0.40 1.29 0.42 to 3.95 ns
  1. N=232; 23 rejection episodes, no missing variables.
  2. Variables tested in the univariable model but not included in the multivariable model: CMV- positive donor, presence of HLA antibodies, donor gender, donor age, type of calcineurin inhibitor (tacrolimus versus CsA), any HLA-A or HLA-B mismatch, time on dialysis, cold ischemia time and delayed graft function.
