Table 4 Univariate and multivariate logistic regression models for the association of the presence of ≥0.0010% HSCs in CB with risk of the most frequent complications in preterm infants

From: Circulating hematopoietic stem cell count is a valuable predictor of prematurity complications in preterm newborns
