The following studies span several types of cancer, and over 30,000 cases and 45,000 controls.
deCODE press release reports rs401681 linked to basal cell carcinoma and many cancers for individuals with shorter telomeres, whereas those with long telomeres are at greater risk of melanoma. Neighboring rs2736098 also increases risk of cancer by affecting telomerase reverse transcriptase. The risk of these different cancers conferred by these two SNPs appears to be independent.
However, a very large study (encompassing thousands of cases and controls) found no association between rs401681 and either (1) mean telomere length, or, (2) breast cancer, colorectal cancer, or melanoma.[PMID 20570912]
