BACKGROUND Genome-wide association (GWA) studies regarding the quantitative trait of alcohol consumption are limited. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to explore genetic loci associated with the amount of alcohol consumed. DESIGN We conducted a GWA study with discovery data on single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for 1721 Korean male drinkers aged 40-69 y who were included in an urban population-based cohort. Another sample that comprised 1113 male drinkers who were from an… CONTINUE READING
