A genome-wide association study identifies two new susceptibility loci for lung adenocarcinoma in the Japanese population.

Abstract:

Lung adenocarcinoma is the most common histological type of lung cancer, and its incidence is increasing worldwide. To identify genetic factors influencing risk of lung adenocarcinoma, we conducted a genome-wide association study and two validation studies in the Japanese population comprising a total of 6,029 individuals with lung adenocarcinoma (cases) and 13,535 controls. We confirmed two previously reported risk loci, 5p15.33 (rs2853677, P(combined) = 2.8 × 10(-40), odds ratio (OR) = 1.41) and 3q28 (rs10937405, P(combined) = 6.9 × 10(-17), OR = 1.25), and identified two new susceptibility loci, 17q24.3 (rs7216064, P(combined) = 7.4 × 10(-11), OR = 1.20) and 6p21.3 (rs3817963, P(combined) = 2.7 × 10(-10), OR = 1.18). These data provide further evidence supporting a role for genetic susceptibility in the development of lung adenocarcinoma.

日本語要旨:

Genome-wide association studyの結果、17q24,3, 6q21,3上の2領域を新規の肺腺がん感受性領域として同定した。同領域に存在するBPTF遺伝子の発現量が遺伝子多型と関連することを見出した。
