Table 2 Parasitology: results of Chi square analysis, number and percentage distribution and p values for comparison between detection rates of parasites in CoeD and control group (parasite DNA was reported simply as detected or not detected)

From: Significantly higher faecal counts of the yeasts candida and saccharomyces identified in people with coeliac disease

Parasite Name CoeD group n = 45 Control group n = 27 Fisher’s exact test (Chi square p value)
