No, because that would still involve a comparison of exposed and
non-exposed. If you want to that route, you'll have to make sure that
exposure is in no way part of your model, but I guess that exposure is
the key variable for your analysis so that is not useful. I guess the
only thing you can do with the data you have is report the raw odds
ratio, without adjusting for anything.

Hope this helps,
