In contrast to the patients without CHD history, CT or CT/CC genotype carriers were observed having significantly decreased niPAH risk when compared to TT or TT/CC genotypes in codominant (CT versus TT: OR = 0.38, 95% CI = 0.20-0.72, p = 0.0092), dominant (CT/CC versus TT: OR = 0.43, 95% CI = 0.24-0.75, p = 0.0031), and overdominant (CT versus TT/CC: OR = 0.47, 95% CI = 0.26-0.85, p = 0.011) models, respectively.
