Abstract

A common single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs10795668, located at 10p14, was first identified to be significantly associated with risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) by a genome-wide association study (GWAS) in 2008; however, another GWAS and following replication studies yielded conflicting results.
