A Scottish and Danish case-control study including 732 Crohn's disease (CD) cases, 973 ulcerative colitis (UC) cases, and 1157 healthy controls found that the rs689466(G) allele was associated with higher risk for ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel disease, especially among those who never smoked. The reported odds ratios were 1.25 and 1.47, rspectively. This allele was also associated with younger age at diagnosis and with extensive ulcerative colitis.[PMID 20803508]
