Table 5 Regression analysis of mean antibody levels to VAR2CSA domains at enrollment on maternal anemia

From: Antibody levels to recombinant VAR2CSA domains vary with Plasmodium falciparum parasitaemia, gestational age, and gravidity, but do not predict pregnancy outcomes

Outcome Graviditya Adjusted OR (95% CI)b p value
Mild anemia Primigravid 0.88 (0.29–2.71) 0.8
Multigravid 1.93 (1.04–3.58) 0.04
Moderate/severe anemia Primigravid 1.92 (0.69–5.36) 0.2
Multigravid 1.69 (0.92–3.12) 0.09
Outcome Gravidity Adjusted βb p value
Hemoglobin Primigravid − 0.05 0.9
Multigravid − 0.19 0.2
