Table 5 Results of chi- square to evaluate association the variables in the study group to the genotypes

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

  OSF Group Genotypes
  Duration Stage 5A/5A 5A/6A 6A/6A
Chi-Square 19.800 8.253 15.200 38.720 25.920 18.000
df 4 8 4 1 1 1
Asymp. Sig. .001 0.40 .004 .000 .000 .000
  1. Association of Duration of the habit with stages of OSF were statistically significant p = 0.01 and p = 0.04 with 5A/5A, 5A/6A,6A/6A genotypes
  2. Thus the association of duration of the habit and stage of OSF was significant with the genotypes
