Associations of CTLA4 Gene Polymorphisms with Graves’ Ophthalmopathy: A Meta-Analysis
Meta-analysis for the effect of the CTLA4 49A/G allele in G carriers and in A carriers on the risk of GO in GD patients. Each comparison is presented by the name of the first author and the year of publication. The point estimate of the odds ratio and the accompanying 95% confidence interval (CI) are shown. “Total” represents the summary random effects estimation for the comparison along with the respective 95% confidence interval. Values above 1 denote an increased risk for GO with the G allele.
