National Cancer Institute (NCI) Prostate Cancer Genome-Wide Association Study for Uncommon Susceptibility Loci (PEGASUS)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
This genome-wide association study was funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to identify uncommon susceptibility loci for prostate cancer. A total of 4,600 prostate cancer cases and 2,840 controls of European ancestry from the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian (PLCO) Cancer Screening Trial were genotyped using the Illumina HumanOmni2.5 and passed rigorous quality control filters. Additional genotype data (available in dbGap under other accession numbers) from 101 independent controls of European ancestry scanned with the HumanOmni2.5 were also included, resulting in a total of 4,600 cases and 2,941 controls for the published analysis. SNPs from the most promising regions, as determined by rank p-value, under multiple different models as well as select candidate genes were taken forward for replication using a custom Iselect chip in 6,575 cases and 6,392 controls of European ancestry. Results from the primary scan after imputation were then meta-analyzed with the Iselect results as well as results from previous GWAS.
