From: Increasing high-sensitive C-reactive protein level predicts peritonitis risk in chronic peritoneal dialysis patients

Figure 2

Peritonitis-free rates between the different groups. The peritonitis-survival free rate is significantly lower in group 2 compared to that in the other 3 groups (A). After adjusting for covariant factors, including DM, age at the time of the study, BMI, and the mean serum albumin level, the HR for peritonitis is significantly higher in group 2 (reference group, HR = 1) compared to that in group 4 (HR = 0.401, 95% CI 0.209–0.769) and in the other 2 groups (B).
