  1. Ethnicity and risk for OASIs

    There is a discrepancy between the statistical data presented and the conclusions drawn with regards to risk for OASIs related to ethnicity. Both the univariate and multivariate data in tables 2 and 3 suggest a higher risk for South Asians and a lower risk for Afro-Caribbeans, yet the text in the results and discussions sections states the converse.

    Could the authors kindly comment?
