Analysing data from a past experiment I found that size of animals and a level of serum biomarker were associated with time to death when considered separately. Though when combining them in a cox model both the variable lost significance. How should I interpret and report this? Is it correct (and also relevant in scientific terms) to affirm that univariable association is lost when analysing both variables in a multivariable cox model?
