Figure 2. Forest plots of association of Pro12Ala polymorphism with diabetic retinopathy. The forest plot compared genotypes Ala (Ala/Ala+Pro/Ala) with Pro/Pro in Caucasian and Asian subgroups. In all eight studies, patients with diabetic retinopathy were treated as cases, and patients with diabetes without retinopathy were treated as controls. Squares indicate the study-specific odds ratio (OR); the size of the box is proportional to the weight of the study. Horizontal lines indicate 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Diamonds indicate summary ORs with corresponding 95% CIs. Our report indicated the statistical difference of incidence of diabetic retinopathy happened in Ala carriers compared with Pro/Pro carriers in total, and no significant association was found in Caucasian and Asian subgroups.
