Table 3 Logistic regression analysis of immunoglobulin classes in Fulani and Non-Fulani ethnic groups

From: FcγRIIa (CD32) polymorphism and anti-malarial IgG subclass pattern among Fulani and sympatric ethnic groups living in eastern Sudan

Antigen IgG subclass OR (95% CI) p value
AMA-1 IgG1 1.2 (1.1 to 1.3) < 0.001
  IgG2 0.6 (0.3 to 0.9) 0.024
  IgG3 2.2 (0.9 to 5.4) 0.062
  IgG4 0.4 (0.1 to 1.2) 0.113
3D7-MSP2 IgG1 1.1 (1.0 to 1.2) 0.015
  IgG2 0.6 (0.4 to 0.9) 0.018
  IgG3 1.0 (1.0 to 1.0) 0.069
  IgG4 0.1 (0.05 to 0.3) < 0.001
FC27-MSP2 IgG1 0.5 (0.2 to 0.9) 0.041
  IgG2 2.9 (1.2 to 7.1) 0.016
  IgG3 2.2 (1.4 to 3.3) < 0.001
  IgG4 0.5 (0.2 to 1.3) 0.159
Pf332-C231 IgG1 2.5 (0.8 to 6.8) 0.081
  IgG2 1.0 (0.9 to 1.0) 0.978
  IgG3 2.7 (1.6 to 4.3) < 0.001
  IgG4 8.1 (3.5 to 18.6) < 0.001
  1. OR represent odds ratios while CI represents confidence intervals. Fulani were assigned 0 while non-Fulani were assigned 1 in the logistic regression analysis. OR above 1 represented value associated to non-Fulani while less than 1 value represented Fulani.
