Multiple independent genetic variants in the 8q24 region are associated with prostate cancer risk.

Abstract

Recently, the 8q24 region has been identified as a prostate cancer susceptibility locus in a genome-wide scan of prostate cancer families in Iceland and an admixture scan of African Americans. Further investigations of variants at 8q24 have shown the existence of additional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that enhance prostate cancer risk, suggesting… (More)
