Defining the Role of the MHC in Autoimmunity: A Review and Pooled Analysis

Figure 2

MHC susceptibility alleles identified by pooled analysis: Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Susceptibility is defined as a lower CI greater than 1.0. Shown are odds ratios with 95% CIs for CD (upper graph), UC (middle graph), and RA (lower graph). Beneath is a schematic representation of MHC class I, class III, and class II genes in genomic order but not to scale. Diamond size represents total number of cases included in pooled analysis for each allele. Diamond color reflects different disease-relevant ancestral haplotypes except for the shared epitope alleles in RA.
