Table 2 Association of gender with 5A/5A,5A/6A,6A/6A in study and control groups

From: A study on genetic polymorphism in Matrix Metalloproteinases-3 in oral submucous fibrosis patients and in healthy individuals

Group Gender 5A/5A 5A/6A 6A/6A
Present Absent Present Absent Present Absent
Study group Males 3 25 5 23 20 8
Females 0 2 0 2 2 0
Total 3 27 5 25 22 8
Control group Males 0 18 2 18 18 2
Females 0 2 0 2 0 2
Total 0 20 0 20 0 20
Chi square value 0.238 0.429 0.779
p value 0.626 0.513 0.377
  1. The female population included in the study group was 6.7% and in the control group was 10%. The frequency of the 5A/5A, 5A/6A genotype in the study population was present only in males
  2. On computing the Chi-square test there was no significant difference present between the gender and genotypes
