Logistic regression model:
Model 1: unadjusted.
Model 2: adjusted for age, sex, hemodialysis vintage, etiology of renal failure, EPO, vitamin-D analogs, antihypertensive agent, iron use, and parathyroidectomy.
Model 3: model 2 + baseline laboratory results (albumin, hemoglobin, cholesterol, triglyceride, glucose (fasting), ferritin, P, iPTH, potassium, uric acid, urea, and cardiac-thoracic ratio).
