Table 3 Comparison of mean differences of variables between TT/TC and CC genotypes in APOA-II -265 T > C polymorphism

From: The effect of weight loss on HDL subfractions and LCAT activity in two genotypes of APOA-II -265T>C polymorphism

Variable TT/TC(n = 22) CC(n = 22) 95% confidence interval a P value b P value
Mean differences(SD) Mean differences(SD)
HDL(ng/ml) −2.81(3.94) −1.46(3.14) −3.5 to 0.82 0.21 0.27
HDL2(ng/ml) 0.86(0.22) 0.99(0.22) 0.75 to 1.008 0.03* 0.05*
HDL3(ng/ml) 1.004(0.14) 0.91(0.17) 0.99 to 1.19 0.06 0.02*
LCAT activity (470/390) 0.24(0.07) 0.25(0.1) −0.06 to 0.04 0.63 0.52
  1. HDL, High density lipoprotein; LCAT, lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase
  2. amean differences of variables between two genotype without adjusting for confounders and bafter adjusting for differences of BMI and physical activity
  3. *P value was obtained from the student’s independent t-test and P value ≤0/05 was considered as statistically significant
  4. For HDL2 and HDL3 Geometric Mean Ratio was used
