AbstractSeveral studies have suggested the association betweenADAM 12 polymorphisms and the risk of osteoarthritis (OA), but the results remained controversial. Therefore, we designed a meta-analysis to systematically evaluate the association on this issue. A literature search for eligible studies was conducted in PubMed, Web of Science and Google Scholar databases. The association betweenADAM 12 polymorphisms and knee OA risk was calculated by odds ratios (ORs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Study heterogeneity, sensitivity and publication bias analyses were also conducted. Ten articles covering 5048 cases and 6848 c...
