For some reason there seems to be mistake in the right-hand table with risk magnitude on the original page.

While the text says:

the rs61731956(A) allele was estimated to be causative for multiple sclerosis, with individuals carrying this mutation having a 70% chance of developing the disease.

The table refers to the GG genotype allele as "risk allele"

Original study says that GG is normal allele while AA is a risk allele, which is consistent with the narrative in SNPedia http://medicalxpress.com/news/2016-06-gene-mutation-multiple-sclerosis.html

right you are! it's now corrected; thanks for the catch. Greg (talk) 01:48, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
