[…] isons for women with one copy (heterozygotes) and women with two copies (rare homozygotes) of the minor allele vs. those with no copies (reference homozygotes) were conducted for all replication SNPs. Between-study heterogeneity was assessed using the likelihood ratio test to compare logistic regression models with and without a genotype-by-study interaction term. Risk estimates from all replication analyses were adjusted for age at diagnosis for cases or age at interview for controls and study site. Exploratory analyses combining all ethnicities were additionally adjusted for ethnicity. Forest plots generated in exploratory analyses according to histological subtype were obtained using the rmeta library (v2.15) implemented in the R project for Statistical Computing (, and LD plots were generated using Haploview v4.1 . All tests for association were two-tailed, and unless otherwise specified, statistical significance was assessed at p<0.05 and tests for association in stage 2 were performed in STATA v. 9.0 (StataCorp, USA)., We are grateful to the family and friends of Kathryn Sladek Smith for their generous support of OCAC through their donations to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
