From the completed analyses performed during the first year of the project, we have identified eleven SNPs that show an association with two-year toxicity following prostate cancer radiotherapy. Three of these single nucleotide polymorphisms SNPs meet the stringent threshold for genome-wide significance meta-p-value 5x10-8, and eight others approached genome-wide significance. For the three genome-wide significant SNPs, we found that the direction of the effect was consistent across all studies for which data were available.
