Table 3 Comparison of genotype frequencies for CCR5 d32 in patients with rheumatoid arthritis stratified for erosive disease and extraarticular manifestations

From: Negative association of the chemokine receptor CCR5 d32 polymorphism with systemic inflammatory response, extra-articular symptoms and joint erosion in rheumatoid arthritis

  Genotype P value
  wt/wt wt/d32+d32/d32  
Erosive disease    
   Yes (n = 296) 253 (85.5) 43 (14.5)  
   No (n = 71) 50 (70.4) 21 (29.6) 0.0047
Extraarticular manifestions    
   Yes (n = 144) 125 (86.8) 19 (13.2)  
   No (n = 184) 142 (77.2) 42 (22.8) 0.0374
  1. Values are the absolute numbers of genotypes with frequencies in percent given in parentheses. P values were calculated using chi-squared test with 2 × 2 contigency tables for comparison of frequencies of the indicated marker in the rheumatoid arthritis patient subgroups. Data for erosive disease status and the presence of extraarticular manifestions was not available for 136 and 175 patients, respectively.
  2. wt = wild type.
