Table 3 Association between colorectal adenoma and apoptosis.

From: Local IGFBP-3 mRNA expression, apoptosis and risk of colorectal adenomas

Apoptosis Cases/Controls OR (95% CI)1 P
High (Q3 & Q4)2 48/163 1.0 (Reference) --
Low (Q1 & Q2) 89/161 1.9 (1.2, 2.8) 0.003
  1. 1 Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI); odds of having colorectal adenomas No confounders were identified so final model contained only apoptosis score.
  2. 2 Q = quartile; Using the median in controls, apoptosis was divided into low (below the median; quartiles 1 and 2 combined) and high (above the median; quartiles 3 and 4 combined) categories.
