Comparing low and high triglyceride groups (<10th & >90th percentile), they found a higher incidence of this variant in the high triglyceride group: high men had 19 heterozygous and 63 wild-type and women had 11 heterozygous and 39 wild-type. Low men had one homozygous, 7 heterozygous, and 74 wild-type, and low women had 50 wild-type. Counting chromosomes this is: high+: 30, high-: 228, low+: 9, low-: 248. This has a significance of 2.6 * 10^-4. The authors state that the incidence of the mutation is 8.4% in caucasians, which would imply that this variant has an OR of ~1.4 for high triglycerides.
