OPG: osteoprotegerin, SNP: single nucleotide polymorphism, RA: rheumatoid arthritis, HS: healthy subjects, OR: odds ratios, and 95% CI: 95% confidence intervals. In order to compute OR (95% CI) the following alleles were used as reference: in correspondence with the allele of risk: rs2073617 T, rs3134070 T, and rs3134069 C.
