[PMID 19767752] Multiple loci on 8q24 associated with prostate cancer susceptibility
[PMID 19767755] Identification of a new prostate cancer susceptibility locus on chromosome 8q24 (P = 1.3 x 10(-10), heterozygote OR = 1.17, 95% CI 1.10-1.24; homozygote OR = 1.33, 95% CI 1.21-1.45).
See the entry for rs4242382, which states, "A joint-odds analysis indicates that rs4242382(A;A) individuals have increased prostate cancer odds of 3.15x or 1.77x if they are also carrying 2 or 1 rs620861(C) alleles, respectively."
