rs1867277, also known as -283G>A, is a SNP upstream of the FOXE1 gene.
Based on ~1,000 thyroid cancer patients (and an equal number of controls), a per allele odds ratio of 1.49 (CI: 1.30-1.70, p=5.9x10e-9) was found for the rs1867277(A) allele. This allele is thought to be a causal variant.[PMID 19730683]
