Table 3 Comparison of prevalence of variant alleles estimated by chi-square analyses in subgroups

From: Lack of effect of apolipoprotein C3 polymorphisms on indices of liver steatosis, lipid profile and insulin resistance in obese Southern Europeans

  Wild Type Homozygotes n (%) Variant-Allele Carriers n (%) p valuea
ALT ≥ 40 (U/L) 54 (40.6) 79 (59.4) 0.918
ALT < 40 (U/L) 145 (41.4) 205 (58.6)  
75 th HOMA-IR (U) 48 (36.6) 83 (63.4) 0.512
25 th HOMA-IR (U) 55 (41.4) 78 (58.6)  
Liver steatosis 49 (42.6) 66 (57.4) 0.869
No liver steatosis 25 (45.5) 30 (54.5)  
  1. a P values were calculated using the Pearson χ2. Abbreviations: ALT, alanine transaminase; HOMA-IR, homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance.
