From: Association between alpha-thalassaemia trait, Plasmodium falciparum asexual parasites and gametocyte carriage in a malaria endemic area in Southern Ghana

Population Additive model Recessive model Dominant model
OR (95% CI) P-value OR (95% CI) P-value OR (95% CI) P-value
Asexual parasites 1.10 (0.81–1.49) 0.53 1.41 (0.71–2.81) 0.33 1.05 (0.71–1.56) 0.797
Gametocytes 0.88 (0.4–1.6) 0.67 1.42 (0.4–4.98) 0.60 0.71 (0.32–1.58) 0.40
  1. Odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) were determined using multivariate logistic regression adjusting for age
  2. P < 0.05 is significant
