A study including 557 Crohn's disease (CD) patients, 425 ulcerative colitis (UC) patients, and 672 ethnically matched Spanish controls as well as a meta-analysis concluded that rs13361189(C) was associated with CD (p=1.07 x 10(-19), pooled odds ratio 1.34) and UC (p=0.0069, pooled odds ratio 1.16).[PMID 19491842]
