(C;C) 1.5 Lower prostate cancer risk?

However, a highly significant association was found for the SNP rs887391 at 19q13. The frequency of risk allele ‘T’ was significantly higher in cases (0.76) than in controls (0.73), P=9.4 × 10−4. As a third-stage confirmation, we genotyped this SNP in 1,527 PCa patients and 482 control subjects of European descent from Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH). The risk allele ‘T’ was more common in cases (0.79) than controls (0.78), although the difference was not significant (P=0.43).
