Gliomas account for approximately 80 % of all primary malignant brain tumors and, despite improvements in clinical care over the last 20 years, remain among the most lethal tumors, underscoring the need for gaining new insights that could translate into clinical advances. Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified seven new susceptibility regions. We conducted a new independent GWAS of glioma using 1,856 cases and 4,955 controls (from 14 cohort studies, 3 case–control studies… Expand
Genome-wide association study of glioma subtypes identifies specific differences in genetic susceptibility to glioblastoma and non-glioblastoma tumors
TLDR
A meta-analysis of existing GWAS and two new GWAS substantiate that genetic susceptibility to GBM and non-GBM tumors are highly distinct, which likely reflects different etiology. Expand
Two novel genetic variants in the STK38L and RAB27A genes are associated with glioma susceptibility
TLDR
This study identified one new risk‐associated locus for glioma on chromosome 12p11.23 and demonstrated two novel association between the gliomas risk region marked by variant rs10842893 and rs4774756) andglioma risk. Expand
Genome-Wide Association Studies in Glioma
TLDR
A chronological history ofglioma GWAS is described, culminating in the most recent study comprising 12,496 cases and 18,190 controls, and associations at the 27 glioma-risk SNPs that have been reported so far are summarized. Expand
Investigation of Established Genetic Risk Variants for Glioma in Prediagnostic Samples from a Population-Based Nested Case–Control Study
TLDR
The results indicate that the risk variants that were confirmed by this study are truly associated with glioma risk and may, consequently, affect gliomagenesis and indicate the need for further studies to clarify the role of gliomas risk loci with respect to prolonged survival versus etiology. Expand
The association of 6 variants of 8q24 and the risk of glioma
TLDR
Of the 6 variants located in 8q24, 2 have strong significant associations with the risk of glioma, including rs4295627 and rs55705857, both homozygous GG and heterozygous GT genotypes were associated withglioma risk. Expand
Associations between three XRCC1 polymorphisms and glioma risk: a meta-analysis
TLDR
A meta-analysis indicates that XRCC1 399Gln and 194Trp variants increase glioma risk, and both of these polymorphisms might raise the susceptibility of gliomas in Asian populations. Expand
The Genetic Architecture of Gliomagenesis–Genetic Risk Variants Linked to Specific Molecular Subtypes
TLDR
Three etiopathological pathways in gliomagenesis based on germline variants are proposed for future guidance of diagnosis and potential functional targets for therapies for therapies. Expand
Genetics in glioma: lessons learned from genome-wide association studies.
TLDR
The link of genetic loci to specific tumor subtypes may have relevance for understandingglioma biology, and for developing new diagnostic tools and targeted therapy for glioma. Expand
Comprehensive study on associations between nine SNPs and glioma risk.
TLDR
The comprehensive analysis of nine SNPs in eight genes suggests that the rs730437 and rs1468727 in ERGF, rs1799782 in XRCC1 gene, and rs861539 inXRCC3 gene are associated with glioma risk. Expand
Relation between Established Glioma Risk Variants and DNA Methylation in the Tumor
TLDR
It is hypothesize that some of the established glioma risk variants induce aberrant DNA methylation in the developing tumor, either locally (gene-specific) or globally (genome-wide). Expand

Chromosome 7p11.2 (EGFR) variation influences glioma risk.
TLDR
Findings show that variation in 7p11.2 is a determinant of inherited glioma risk, independent of tumor subtype, and independent of EGFR amplification, p16INK4a deletion and IDH1 mutation status in tumors; compatible with driver effects of the variants on gliomas development. Expand
Genome-wide association study identifies five susceptibility loci for glioma
TLDR
Meta-analysis of two genome-wide association studies by genotyping 550K tagging SNPs shows that common low-penetrance susceptibility alleles contribute to the risk of developing glioma and provide insight into disease causation of this primary brain tumor. Expand
Variants in the CDKN2B and RTEL1 regions are associated with high grade glioma susceptibility
TLDR
A principal component–adjusted genome-wide association study of 275,895 autosomal variants among 692 adult high-grade glioma cases and 3,992 controls found that two SNPs had the same direction of association in discovery and replication phases. Expand
Cancer susceptibility variants and the risk of adult glioma in a US case–control study
TLDR
The results suggest that GWAS-identified SNPs in glioma mark different molecular etiologies inglioma, and Stratification by broad histological subgroups may shed light on molecular mechanisms and assist in the discovery of novel loci in future studies of genetic susceptibility variants in Glioma.

Genome-wide association study of prostate cancer identifies a second risk locus at 8q24
TLDR
Observations indicate the presence of at least two independent loci within 8q24 that contribute to prostate cancer in men of European ancestry, and it is estimated that the population attributable risk of the new locus, marked by rs6983267, is higher than the locus marked byrs1447295. Expand
A genome-wide association study of lung cancer identifies a region of chromosome 5p15 associated with risk for adenocarcinoma.
TLDR
A lung cancer GWAS identified a distinct hereditary contribution to adenocarcinoma, and previously reported association signals on 15q25 and 6p21 were refined, but no additional loci reached genome-wide significance. Expand
A genome-wide association study identifies alleles in FGFR2 associated with risk of sporadic postmenopausal breast cancer
TLDR
Four SNPs in intron 2 of FGFR2 (which encodes a receptor tyrosine kinase and is amplified or overexpressed in some breast cancers) that were highly associated with breast cancer were identified and confirmed in 1,776 affected individuals and 2,072 controls from three additional studies. Expand
Aggregation of Cancer in First-Degree Relatives of Patients with Glioma
TLDR
An overall 21% increase in cancer is observed among the FDRs of glioma patients including excess cases of brain tumors and melanoma, which could point to similar genetic contributions to these two malignancies. Expand
Distinct germ line polymorphisms underlie glioma morphologic heterogeneity.
TLDR
Preliminary observations generate hypotheses concerning the possible mechanisms by which specific SNPs (or alterations in linkage disequilibrium with such SNPs) are associated with glioma development. Expand
A germline variant in the TP53 polyadenylation signal confers cancer susceptibility
TLDR
A genome-wide association study of 16 million SNPs identified through whole-genome sequencing of 457 Icelanders found that rs78378222 is in the 3′ untranslated region of TP53 and changes the AATAAA polyadenylation signal to AATACA, resulting in impaired 3′-end processing of TP 53 mRNA. Expand
