Located in the HLA-DPB1 gene, the rs9277378(A) allele is reported in a study of ~800 Chinese patients as roughly doubling risk for the nasal type of extranodal natural killer T-cell lymphoma (NKTCL; CI:1.6-2.1, p=4·21 × 10e−19). This rare, aggressive malignancy occurs predominantly in Asian and Latin American populations.[PMID 27470079]
