Values are given as counts per number of patients of which data was available. For the multivariate analysis, odds ratios are given with regard to MSM. The pvalue for the HosmerLemeshow test for the multivariate model is 0.625. MSM, men who have sex with men; HBV, Hepatitis B Virus; HCV, Hepatitis C Virus; DRM, Drug Resistant Mutations; PHI, Primary HIV Infection; IQR, interquartile range; CI, confidence interval.
