Table 1 TLR2 Δ22, and GTn genotypes

From: Toll-like receptor polymorphisms and cerebral malaria: TLR2 Δ22 polymorphism is associated with protection from cerebral malaria in a case control study

Polymorphism Genotype Cerebral malaria n = 65 Uncomplicated malaria n = 52 p value OR 95% CI
Δ22 W/W 36(56.3) 18(35.3) .025I 0.42 0.20-0.98
  W/D 21(32.8) 30(58.8)II .005III 0.34 0.16-0.73
  D/D 7(10.9) 3(5.9)    
GTn SM 12(19.4) 8(16.7)    
  MM 46(74.2) 34(70.8)    
  ML 4(6.4) 6(12.5)    
  1. OR and 95% CI presented only for p values where p < 0.05
  2. I p value for dominant genotype test, WD/DD vs WW
  3. IIp = 0.065 for Hardy Weinberg Test of equilibrium, excess of heterozygotes
  4. III p value for heterozygote advantage genotype test, WD vs DD/WW
