  1. 1 Un-adjusted logistic regression model; OR, odds ratio
  2. §Adjusted for age, sex, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, high density lipoprotein cholesterol
  3. In analyses, a additive effect of the variant (V) allele was assumed, the genotype wild (W) W/W,W/V and V/V were coded as 1,2, and 3, respectively; when a dominant effect was assumed, genotype W/W was coded as 2, and an W/V and V/V combined were coded as 1. Accordingly, scores of 2 for W/W, W/V combined and of 1 for V/V were used in the assumed recessive effect
  4. Referred to AC vs. AA; CC vs. AA was not significant in additive model in logistic regression
