From: Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura-hemolytic uremic syndrome (TTP-HUS): a 24-year clinical experience with 178 patients

Variable (unit) 30-Day Mortality OR (95% CI) p-value Relapse OR (95% CI) p-value
Clinical Severity Score 1.29 (0.94–1.79) 0.12 0.87 (0.58–1.31) 0.51
Fever at presentation 0.77 (0.33–1.85) 0.56 0.55 (0.19–1.57) 0.26
Age 1.014 (0.99–1.04) 0.2 0.99 (0.96–1.01) 0.3
Platelet count (per μL) 1.0 (0.99–1.01) 0.94 1.0 (0.98–1.01) 0.72
Hemoglobin (g/dL) 1.03 (0.85–1.25) 0.77 0.93 (0.75–1.16) 0.52
