Table 5 Multivariate analysis of factors affecting OSCC

From: The 2G allele of promoter region of Matrix metalloproteinase-1 as an essential pre-condition for the early onset of oral squamous cell carcinoma

A Results of factors affecting OSCC
  βcoefficient OR 95% CI of OR p
2G+ 0.83 2.30 (1.15–4.58) 0.0180
Age 0.90 2.47 (1.47–4.14) 0.0006
B Results showing the alleles independently associated with OSCC (adjusted for age and gender).
Allele β coefficient OR 95% CI of OR p
1G/2G 0.782 2.187 (1.06–4.51) 0.034
2G/2G 0.907 2.476 (1.20–5.13) 0.015
  1. A: 2G+ : 2G- = 0, 2G+ = 1
  2. Age : <45 = 0, 45 = 1
  3. B: With adjustment for age and gender Alleles are included as multinomial variables with categorical coding in reference to 1G/1G allele.
  4. % concordance = 74.9%.
  5. Hosmer-Lemeshow Goodness-of-fit test: χ2 test = 0.996 ; p = 0.998
