Table 6 Relationship between age, number of remaining teeth, and colony amounts of Candida by logistic regression modelsa

From: Prevalence of Candida albicans and non-albicans on the tongue dorsa of elderly people living in a post-disaster area: a cross-sectional survey

C. albicans (n = 93)
  Variable Crude partial regression coefficient Adjusted partial regression coefficient 95% CI p-value
 First step Number of remaining teeth -0.06 0.94 0.53–0.94 0.053
Age 0.01 1.02 0.95–1.08 0.65
 Second (final) step Number of remaining teeth -0.07 0.94 0.88–0.99 0.03
Non- albicans (n = 59)
  Variable Partial regression coefficient Adjusted partial regression coefficient 95% CI p-value
 First step Number of remaining teeth -0.11 0.90 0.82–0.98 0.02
Age -0.02 0.62 0.90–1.06 0.62
 Second (final) step Number of remaining teeth -0.10 0.91 0.83–0.98 0.02
