In a study of ~1,000 Chinese patients with various biliary tract conditions, including cancer and gallstones, men carrying a rs440446(C) allele (in dbSNP orientation) had a 1.7x risk of gallstone disease [CI: 1.2-2.4], a 1.8x risk of gallbladder cancer (CI: 1.0-3.3), a 3.7x risk of bile duct cancer (CI: 2.0-7.0), and a 4x risk of ampullary cancer (CI: 1.4-12.4).[PMID 18296645]
