  1. The table shows odds ratios, adjusted for age in 6 strata and for geographical location in 8 strata, of death due to all invasive bacterial disease, of death due to Gram negative invasive bacterial disease and of death due to Gram positive invasive bacterial disease, for homozygosity at microsatellite markers either alone or paired (where interactions were noted with LRT p values < 0.05). Variables excluded, with LRT p values = 0.05, in addition to sex and SOH, were markers d12s352, d14s261, d14s275, d16s3103 and d18s452 in the gram negative model, markers d13s158, d14s261, d14s280 and d16s423 in the gram positive model and markers d12s352, d14s261, d14s280 and d15s1007 in the combined model. Variables and interaction terms in the final models all had LRT p values < 0.02.
