Association of RAGE gene multiple variants with the risk for COPD and asthma in northern Han Chinese

Figure 1. The nomogram graphs for estimating the risk of COPD (the upper panel) and asthma (the lower panel) based on significant risk factors. Abbreviations: COPD: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; TC: total cholesterol; HDLC: high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HCY: homocysteine; FPG: fasting plasma glucose. The point for each factor is summed and projected on total point line. A vertical line is projected from total point line to predicted probability bottom scale to obtain the individual probability of COPD or asthma risk.
