SNPs clustered in one region of chromosome 6p22 have been linked to increased risk for the exceedingly rare childhood cancer known as neuroblastoma. A study involving 720 patients determined that rs9295536(A;A) genotypes had increased likelihood of neuroblastoma development (odds ratio 1.93, CI: 1.55 to 2.40, p=8 x 10-8). At-risk homozygotes diagnosed with neuroblastoma had, on average, more malignant clinical presentation, more aggressive disease, and poorer long-term survival.[PMID 18463370]
