Study Description

Within the framework of the International Lymphoma Epidemiology Consortium (InterLymph) Consortium and NCI-sponsored Cohort Consortium, investigators from 22 studies came together to conduct a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The goal of the study was to identify common genetic variants associated with the risk of NHL. As described previously (Berndt SI et al., Nature Genetics, 2013, PMID: 23770605 ), cases and controls from 22 studies, including nine prospective cohort studies, eight population-based case-control studies, and five clinic or hospital-based case-control studies were included in this effort. Cases of NHL were ascertained from cancer registries, clinics or hospitals, or through self-report verified by medical and pathology reports. The phenotype information for all NHL cases was reviewed centrally at the InterLymph Data Coordinating Center and harmonized according to the hierarchical classification proposed by the InterLymph Pathology Working Group based on the World ...
