Univariate log-rank tests revealed no difference in mortality between the two cohorts (p=0.14).
However, there were strong mortality differences across rank categories (p=0.0009) with ‘NCM,
low’ having the lowest mortality. There was also a strong age gradient (p<0.0001) that might
explain the rank effect. These effects were replicated in the univariate Cox model with HR=7.8
for the oldest age group.
No differences were seen between the cohorts after multivariate adjustment (p=0.19). The strong
age effect was again found but there was no effect of rank. After adjusting for age (using four 10-
year age groups), there was no evidence of any difference in early and late mortality from other
causes (p=0.36).
