Table 4 Table over predictors of bacterial vaginosis in 150 women living with HIV, included in the study. Unadjusted and adjusted for: age at inclusion, ethnicity, plasma HIV RNA, CD4 cell count, herpes viridae, human papilloma virus and vaginal HIV RNA shedding

From: Bacterial vaginosis, human papilloma virus and herpes viridae do not predict vaginal HIV RNA shedding in women living with HIV in Denmark
