21 In these analyses, data are censored for patients who'·are followed for periods of time that are shorter than those of the remaining study population. 22 Cumulative risk ana[ysis ifEVIII inhibitor incidence Although few published studies have included a cumulative risk analysis of inhibitor formation, this evaluation is quite easy if the needed data are available for all of the patients in the study. To establish the most important, measurable risk factor for inhibitor formation, Lee and colleagues evaluated the effect of different variables using stepwise logistic regression analysis.
