Table 2 Association analysis of the Thr54 polymorphism and phenotypic parameters

From: Polymorphism of the FABP2 gene: a population frequency analysis and an association study with cardiovascular risk markers in Argentina

Phenotypic parameters and threshold values OR CI (p = 0.05) Significance
Cholesterol > 240 mg/ml 2.01 0.87–4.65 NS
BMI>24 kg/m2 1.44 0.7–2.98 NS
Cardiovascular risk >9 1.25 0.62–2.5 NS
Diastolic blood pressure > 90 mmHg 0.93 0.51–1.69 NS
Systolic blood pressure > 140 mmHg 0.86 0.44–1.47 NS
Glycemia > 140 mg/dl postprandial 0.76 0.33–1.76 NS
  1. ORs were calculated as ratio between polymorphism carriers and non-carriers with high blood pressure (>140 mmHg systolic or 90 mmHg diastolic), high Framingham Risk Index (>9) high cholesterol (> 240 mg/dl), high BMI (>24 kg/m2), and high glycemia (>110 mg/dl after 8 h fasting or >140 postprandial mg/dl). 95% Confidence Intervals for p = 0.05 are shown. All CI include OR = 1, indicating no significant association between the polymorphism and the parameters tested.
