Model numberBeta95% CI BetaP value
Model 1
Change in parathyroid hormone0.380.11, 0.750.005
Change in calcium0.350.09, 0.700.006
Age−0.19−0.59, 0.160.11
Change in phosphate0.15−0.19, 0.320.21

Change in interleukin-180.13−0.03, 0.310.08
Dialysis vintage0.08−0.16, 0.200.28
Independent variables: age, gender, dialysis vintage, and changes in serum hsPCR and cytokines.
Model 3
