Variations in chromosomes 9 and 6p21. 3 with risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Background. There is growing evidence linking genetic variations to non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) etiology. To complement on-going agnostic approaches for identifying susceptibility genes, we evaluated 488 candidate gene regions and their relation to risk for NHL and NHL subtypes. Methods. We genotyped 6679 tag single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 947 cases and 826 population-based controls from a multicenter US-based case- control study. Gene region-level summary of associations were obtained by computing …
