Abstract [en]

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) have shown that common genetic variation contributes to the heritable risk of CLL. To identify additional CLL susceptibility loci, we conducted a GWAS and performed a meta-analysis with a published GWAS totaling 1,739 individuals with CLL (cases) and 5,199 controls with validation in an additional 1,144 cases and 3,151 controls. A combined analysis identified new susceptibility loci mapping to 3q26.2 (rs10936599, P = 1.74 x 10(-9)), 4q26 (rs6858698, P = 3.07 x 10(-9)), 6q25.2 (IPCEF1, rs2236256, P = 1.50 x 10(-10)) and 7q31.33 (POT1, rs17246404, P = 3.40 x 10(-8)). Additionally, we identified a promising association at 5p15.33 (CLPTM1L, rs31490, P = 1.72 x 10(-7)) and validated recently reported putative associations at 5p15.33 (TERT, rs10069690, P = 1.12 x 10(-10)) and 8q22.3 (rs2511714, P = 2.90 x 10(-9)). These findings provide further insights into the genetic and biological basis of inherited genetic susceptibility to CLL.
