She added that even if new adult infections peaked today, the number of Helps orphans would still continue to increase because an HIV-positive person frequently continues to surpass 10 years following the virus can be transmitted.We examined the null hypothesis that the prices through the control period equaled the prices through the intervention period, using the PROC GENMOD procedure in SAS software, version 8.2 , to fit a Poisson regression model that accounted for monthly prevalence of MRSA and VRE colonizations or infections in each unit as possible confounders. We used a Cox proportional-hazards regression model to compare enough time from admission until the first primary bloodstream illness between the control and intervention periods.
