Table 1 Identification of variables confounded with acute chorioamnionitis status (pathology)

From: Association of a placental Interleukin-6 genetic variant (rs1800796) with DNA methylation, gene expression and risk of acute chorioamnionitis

  aCA Non-aCA p-value*
N 72 197  
Maternal age (yrs); range (mean) 19.6–44.0 (32.0) 17.0–43.5 (33.0) ns
GA at delivery (wks); range (mean) 20.0–40.0 (28.0) 19.4–41.9 (36.0) 4.32e-15
Birth weight (SD); range (mean) − 3.10 - 3.05 (− 0.14) −3.13 - 3.23 (0.04) ns
Sex; M/F 38/34 103/94 ns
  1. *p-values are calculated by comparison of aCA cases to non-aCA cases using Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney rank sum test for continuous variables, Fisher’s exact test for fetal sex. ns = p > 0.05
