Recent genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) association studies (GWAS) have identified a number of SNPs that were significantly associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) and myocardial infarction (MI). We tested for replication of the previously described association with CAD in our case-control datasets of SNPs variants located at 1p13.1, 2q33.1, 10q11.1, 9p21, and 21q22. We observed a small significant risk associated of the SNP rs10757274 with CAD in the PROCAGENE study. Besides, the multilocus combination rs10757274 and rs1333048 gave a near significant result. We confirmed that the SNP rs10757274 showed association with CAD in the PROCAGENE study, although after applying the Bonferroni correction was not longer significant. Independent replication studies in other populations are needed to unequivocally confirm the association.
