Figure 3

a, b: Hazard ratios for prostate cancer by OGG1 genotype. Hazard ratios (HR), with 95% confidence interval, for later diagnosis of prostate cancer in tertile 3 versus tertile 1(black line) and tertile 2 vs. tertile 1(gray line) of serum selenium levels at baseline, 50 years of age, by OGG1 genotypes. To the left (a) from top are results for SNPs rs2304277 and rs125701 and at the bottom for all genotyped men and the full cohort. To the right (b) from top are results for SNPs rs293796 and rs2472037. Tertile serum selenium definitions: tertile 1: ≤ 70 μg/L, tertile 2: 70.1- 81 μg/L and tertile 3: > 81 μg/L. "n" denotes number of participants in analysis.
