* OR and 95% CI were adjusted for age, sex, and smoking. Erosive RA cases were classified as Steinbrocker scores II-IV. RA, rheumatoid arthritis; OR, odds ratios; CI, confidence intervals.

† The attributable proportion (95% CI) due to interaction was 0.19 (-0.06 to 0.43) in erosive RA and 0.11 (-0.27 to 0.48) in non-erosive RA.

‡ The attributable proportion (95% CI) due to interaction was 0.48 (0.25 to 0.72) in erosive RA and 0.46 (0.14 to 0.78) in non-erosive RA.
