Table 2 Association of common risk factors with aging-related diseases in the PolSenior group. Univariate analysis of common risk factors and aging related diseases

From: TLR-6 SNP P249S is associated with healthy aging in nonsmoking Eastern European Caucasians - A cohort study

Risk factor   P-value Mean (SD)
Age   <0.001 75.7 (6.6)/77.3 (6.3)
BMI   <0.001 27.9(4.8)/28.6 (4.9)
   P-value OR (95 % CI)
IL-6 Intermediate 0.016 1.578 (1.088–2.289)
High <0.001 2.108 (1.472–3.020)
Smoking Past 0.619 1.061 (0.841–1.338)
Current 0.003 0.586 (0.413–0.831)
Hypertension   0.175 1.184 (0.928–1.512)
  1. Age was analyzed by T-test and BMI was analyzed by Mann–Whitney U test. Micro-inflammation (IL-6), smoking and hypertension were analyzed by logistic regression with IL-6 levels ≤1 ng/L as reference and 1.1–2.0 ng/L (intermediate) and >2 ng/L (high) as predictors, as well as no smoking or no hypertension as reference
