NEW: Only meta-analysis results with P-values <0.0001 are displayed in this table. Loci are ranked by statistical significance (P-value). For loci containing more than one polymorphism showing significant association with P <0.0001, only the polymorphism with the smallest P-value is displayed here. Please contact us to request a list of other at least nominally significant meta-analysis results.

All results are assessed for their epidemiological credibility using two methods:

1. The HuGENet interim criteria for the cumulative assessment of genetic associations: These criteria (Ioannidis et al, 2008a; Khoury et al, 2009) take into account amount of evidence (i.e. sample size, measured as "N minor"), consistency of replication (i.e. heterogeneity across studies, measured as "I2" [NB: this criterion does not apply [n.a.] to genome-wide significant findings [P < 5.0E-8]), and protection from bias ("Bias reason"). Overall epidemiological credibility is graded as "A" (=strong) if associations received three A grades, "B" (=moderate) if they received at least one B grade but no C grades, and "C" (=weak) if they received a C grade in any of the three assessment criteria.

2. Bayesian analyses: For this assessment we calculate Bayes factors (expressed here as log10-values) assuming an average non-null odds ratio of 1.15 using a spike and smear prior distribution of effects (as described in Ioannidis, 2008b) Generally, a logBF ≥5, which suggests that the data increase over 100,000-fold the odds of a given finding being true vs. not true, is considered as strong support in the context of genetic association studies (Stephens and Balding, 2009).
