Table 2 Association of autoantibodies with shared epitope (SE) alleles

From: Rheumatoid arthritis associated autoantibodies in patients with synovitis of recent onset

  SE/x SE/SE *0401/*0101
All patients    
RF 1.8 3.7* 8.7*
AFA 2.2* 5.1* 9.5*
Anti-Sa 2.0 7.1* 18.9*
Anti-CCP 2.0 5.0* 10.9*
AKA 1.4 3.1* 3.4*
RA patients    
RF 1.8 2.7 5.3
AFA 2.2 4.9* 6.5*
Anti-SA 1.9 4.0* 10.6*
Anti-CCP 2.0 3.0 7.2*
AKA 1.4 2.9 3.3
  1. Numbers represent odds ratios for having each autoantibody associated with shared epitope alleles. SE/x, SE/SE, DRB *0401/*0101 were each compared with patients with no shared epitope alleles. *P<0.05 by Chi-square after Bonferroni adjustment for multiple comparison, RF, Rheumatoid factor; AFA, antifilaggrin antibody; CCP, cyclic citrullinated peptide; AKA, antikeratin antibody.
