Table 1 Odds Ratios and 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the development of cervical cancer in relation to -308 TNF-α alleles among the cervical cancer cases and controls in the two South African ethnic population groups.

From: The allelic distribution of -308 Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha gene polymorphism in South African women with cervical cancer and control women
