NCI Expanded Genome-Wide Association Study of Renal Cell Carcinoma
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) expanded genome-wide association study (GWAS) of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) was a 2nd GWAS of this cancer performed by NCI to further investigate common genetic variants associated with RCC risk. The GWAS includes 2,781 cases and 2,940 controls of European background from 13 studies conducted in the US and Finland (10 cohorts, 2 case series, 1 hospital biorepository), scanned using the Illumina OmniExpress and Omni2.5 SNP arrays.
SNP-level results from this GWAS were combined by meta-analysis with results from the earlier NCI RCC GWAS (phs000351.v1.p1; 1,311 cases and 3,424 controls) and others conducted by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (scan 1: 2,438 cases and 5,071 controls; scan 2: 2,781 cases and 2,940 controls), The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (893 cases and 556 controls) and the Institute for Cancer Research, UK (944 cases and 4,024 controls).
Only data from the second NCI scan are included in this dbGaP submission. Data from 239 cases and 229 controls from this scan will be deposited in ... (Show More)
