Table 2 Odds ratio for the risk of febrile malaria episodes

From: Cytophilic antibodies to Plasmodium falciparum Glutamate Rich Protein are associated with malaria protection in an area of holoendemic transmission

R0-GLURP antibodies Unadjusted odds ratio (95% CI)1 P-value Adjusted odds ratio (95% CI)2 P-value
IgG 0.49 (0.25 – 0.94) 0.031 1.13 (0.50 – 2.53) 0.77
IgG1 0.17 (0.07 – 0.42) <0.001 0.39 (0.15 – 0.99) 0.047
IgG2 0.47 (0.20 – 1.08) 0.075 1.42 (0.58 – 3.46) 0.445
IgG3 0.25 (0.11 – 0.58) 0.001 0.52 (0.20 – 1.40) 0.197
IgG4 0.42 (0.18 – 0.99) 0.046 0.77 (0.30 – 2.03) 0.602
  1. 1 Logistic regression indicating risk of febrile malaria episode in individuals with detectable plasma levels of anti R0-GLURP antibodies (for IgG, IgG1, IgG2, IgG3 and IgG4, respectively) relative to those without a measurable antibody response. 2 Adjusted for the effect of age including age as square root of age.
