Table 2 Association between number of CagA EPIYA C motifs and H. pylori-associated diseases

From: Higher number of Helicobacter pylori CagA EPIYA C phosphorylation sites increases the risk of gastric cancer, but not duodenal ulcer

  1. The Hosmer-Lemeshow test showed good fitness of the model of gastric cancer (8 degrees of freedom, p = 0.86, with 10 steps) and duodenal ulcer (8 degrees of freedom, p = 0.25, with 10 steps).
