deCODEIceland1,619 cases identified from a list maintained by the Icelandic Cancer Registry that contains all 4,144 Icelandic prostate cancer patients diagnosed from January 1, 1955, to June 31, 2006.30,779 controls (43.3% male) from genetic research projects at deCODE: some diagnosed with common diseases (cardiovascular, endocrine, autoimmune, psychiatric, and neurologic); others randomly selected from the Icelandic genealogic database.Caucasian (100%)rs1801133Yes(30)

UKGPCSUnited Kingdom1,854 cases diagnosed in the United Kingdom through clinical symptoms, selected from the UK Genetic Prostate Cancer Study on the basis of age ≤60 y (64%) or first or second-degree family history of prostate cancer (36%).1,894 controls selected from among men invited to participate in the ProtecT study who had a PSA level of <0.5 ng/mL.Caucasian (100%)rs1801133Yes(33)

ProtecT studyUnited Kingdom1,600 cases diagnosed during recruitment of men age 50-69 y to a UK population–based trial of treatments for localized prostate cancer. Men underwent a biopsy if they had a PSA level of ≥3 ng/mL.1,855 controls selected at random from among men age 50-69 y invited to participate in the ProtecT study who had a PSA level of <3 ng/mL or PSA of ≥3 ng/mL and a negative biopsy, plus 1,203 “low PSA” controls (PSA level, <0.5 ng/mL). Of the controls in these two groups, 344/1,855 and 622/1,203 were also used by the UKGPCS.Caucasian (>98%)rs1801133Yes
