A genome-wide association study of 2,679 patients with multiple sclerosis (and 3,000+ controls) concluded that the rs10492972(C) allele is a risk allele for the disease, with an odds ratio of 1.35 (p = 2.5 x 10e-10). This is one of the few SNPs associated with multiple sclerosis that is not related to immune function. [PMID 18997785]
A 2011 report combining eight data sets of cases and controls and three independent data sets of the International Multiple Sclerosis Genetic Consortium excluded the rs10492972(C) allele as a major "risk" allele for MS with a high degree of confidence (p = 1.18 × 10e-4), i.e. they say it's not a risk allele.[PMID 21594895]
