The data presented here show that none of the naturally occurring haplotypes of the PADI4 gene conferred susceptibility to RA in an average group of Hungarian patients; this is in agreement with findings for other European populations. In addition, none of the functional PADI4 haplotypes were associated with the pathologic immune response, which was evidenced by the absence of accumulation of anti-CCP-positive subjects in the specific PADI4 haplotypes.
