*Ten variables were included in multivariate conditional logistic regression analysis. Backward conditional logistic regression was conducted by removing variables with p>0.10, and 8 variables remained in the final regression model. All statistical tests were 2-sided, and significance was defined as p<0.05. The statistic for each variable was obtained after adjustment for other 7 variables in the final regression model.
