From: Non-association between low vitamin d levels and aeroallergen-positivity evaluated using multiple allergen simultaneous test in Korean adults

Types of aeroallergen Adjusted coefficients (SD) 95% CI P-value*
House dust mites (n = 384) 0.271 (1.069) − 1.831 to 2.374 0.800
Pollens (n = 236) − 0.175 (0.569) − 1.294 to 0.943 0.758
Animal dander (n = 151) 0.308 (0.528) − 0.731 to 1.346 0.560
Foods (n = 117) 0.173 (0.329) − 0.474 to 0.821 0.599
Cockroach (n = 76) 0.054 (0.391) − 0.715 to 0.822 0.891
Fungus (n = 66) 0.356 (0.470) − 0.568 to 1.280 0.449
