Numerous studies have evaluated the association between the Ala1330Val polymorphism of the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related proteins 5 (LRP5) gene and fracture risk. However, the specific association is still controversial. The aim of this study was to investigate their correlation via meta-analysis. and EMBASE databases were searched, and data were extracted independently by two reviewers. Odds ratios (ORs) with corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to assess the strength of the associations.
Although a number of studies have been conducted on the association between the peptidylarginine deiminase (PADI4) -94G/A polymorphism and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in the Chinese population, the association remains elusive and controversial. To clarify the impact of the PADI4 -94G/A polymorphism on the risk of RA, a meta-analysis was performed in the Chinese population.
