  1. Generated using a single LTC (on its own, with no other LTCs) in the models detailed in Table 4. Confidence intervals are bias-corrected, based on 1000 bootstrap replications of the data (implemented in STATA using the program described by Vittinghoff et al. [30]). Values in italics represent results for which the 95% confidence interval excludes zero.
