In ~600 Korean SLE patients, the odds ratio for the rs2004640(T) risk allele was 1.44 (CI: 1.34-1.55, overall p=1.85x10e-23). The rs2004640-T/rs2280714-T haplotype involved in both the alternative splice donor site and the elevated expression of the IRF5 protein also had a highly significant association with SLE (pooled p=2.11x 10e-16).[PMID 17389033]

[PMID 18063667] A variant located 64 bp upstream of the first untranslated exon (exon 1A), consisting of a 5 bp insertion/deletion CGGGG (rs77571059), may be the causative SNP in this region that is most responsible for increasing SLE risk.
[PMID 18843785] In a Korean population, rs2004640 was associated with both the anti-CCP Ab-positive (odds ratio 1.47, CI: 1.15-1.88, pcorr = 0.01) and SE-positive group (odds ratio 1.54, CI: 1.14-2.09, pcorr = 0.03) forms of rheumatoid arthritis. Combined analysis pooling 3 independent cohorts yielded an association with an odds ratio of 1.21, CI: 1.07-1.38, pooled p = 0.0031 in a dominant model.
[PMID 19228650] A meta-analysis comprising 5 case-control studies, totaling 6,582 rheumatoid arthritis cases and 5,375 controls, concluded that several IRF5 gene SNPs were indeed (still) significantly associated with the disease. The rs2004640(G) allele was associated with a slight protective effect (odds ratio 0.9, CI: 0.85-0.96, p = 0.002).
