5 SNPs predict prostate cancer mortality

In a nice study published by first authors Dan Lin and Liesel Fitzgerald in CEBP, polymorphisms in 5 genes were identified as being significantly associated with prostate cancer specific mortality - LEPR, CRY1, RNASEL, IL4, and ARVCF -- none of the SNPs interacted -- and none (except RNASEL) has been evaluated for prostate cancer before -- see it for yourself

Genetic Variants in the LEPR, CRY1, RNASEL, IL4, and ARVCF Genes Are Prognostic Markers of Prostate Cancer-Specific Mortality.
