Identification of Susceptibility Loci and Genes for Colorectal Cancer Risk.


BACKGROUND & AIMS Known genetic factors explain only a small fraction of genetic variation in colorectal cancer (CRC). We conducted a genome-wide association study to identify risk loci for CRC. METHODS This discovery stage included 8027 cases and 22,577 controls of East-Asian ancestry. Promising variants were evaluated in studies including as many as 11… (More)
