Association of the C allele of rs479200 in the EGLN1 gene with COVID-19 severity in Indian population: a novel finding.

Publication date: Jan 30, 2024

The present study investigated two single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)-rs479200 and rs516651 in the host EGLN1/PHD2 gene for their association with COVID-19 severity. A retrospective cohort of 158 COVID-19 patients from the Indian population (March 2020 to June 2021) was enrolled. Notably, the frequency of C allele (0. 664) was twofold higher than T allele (0. 336) in severe COVID-19 patients. Here, we report a novel finding that the C allele of rs479200 in the EGLN1 gene imparts a high risk of severe COVID-19 (odds ratio-6. 214 (1. 84-20. 99) pā€‰=ā€‰0. 003; 9. 421 (2. 019-43. 957) pā€‰=ā€‰0. 004), in additive inheritance model (adjusted and unadjusted, respectively).
