  1. The total radiographic score, calculated in accordance with the van der Heijde modified Sharp method, was used to quantify the progression of the structural damage for the whole cohort and for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, whether or not they carried the 196R allele. Values are expressed as median (interquartile range).
