Table 4 Logistic regression analysis when obesity was used as a dependent variable and apelin concentration, APLN T-1860C, and APLNR G212A polymorphisms were taken as independent variables

From: Relationships of apelin concentration and APLN T-1860C polymorphism with obesity in Thai children

Variables β Adjusted ORa 95% CI P-value

APLN T-1860C 1.48 4.39 1.25–15.28 0.020*
APLNR G212A 0.43 1.53 0.37–6.60 0.566
 Apelin −0.78 0.45 0.23–0.92 0.029*
