A replication study and genome-wide scan of single-nucleotide polymorphisms associated with pancreatic cancer risk and overall survival

Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide
The effects of SNPs on pancreatic cancer risk and OS were replicated in our study, although further work is necessary to understand the functional mechanisms underlying these effects. More importantly, the putative association with OS identified by GWAS suggests that GWAS may be useful in identifying SNPs associated with clinical outcome in pancreatic cancer.
