*Odds ratio and 95% CI of having one or two GAGC haplotypes in cases v controls (boys and girls analysed separately) using a multinomial logistic regression model; †haplotype of four SNPs. “0 GAGC” indicates that the individual does not have the haplotype and “1 or 2 GAGC” that the individual has one or two such haplotypes. | |||||||
