TABLE 5

Demographic characteristics of study sample by haplotype Healthy subjects aged 18–40 years and of European descent were recruited for the study based on haplotype at the OCTN locus. Subjects were homozygous for either the common C/G* haplotype [OCTN1-1507C, OCTN2-(–207G)] or the T/C* haplotype [OCTN1-1507T, OCTN2-(–207C)]. Values are shown as mean ± S.D. Baseline differences between subject groups were assessed using a two-tailed unpaired t test. Gender differences were assessed by Fisher's exact test.
