ACPA, anti-cyclic citrullinated proteins antibody; Ca/Co, the number of exposed cases/number of exposed controls; MyEIRA, Malaysian Epidemiological Investigation of Rheumatoid Arthritis; OR (95% CI), odds ratio and 95% confidence interval, adjusted for ethnicity and formal education by using conditional logistic regression; RA, rheumatoid arthritis. The "any SE alleles group" was defined by the presence of either one or two HLA-DRB1*01:01, *01:02, *01:07, *04:01, *04:04, *04:05, *04:08, *04:10, *10:01, and/or *10:03. The "HLA-DRB1*04:05 group" was defined by the presence of either one or two HLA-DRB1*04:05 allele.
