It has been discovered that certain polymorphic markers on chromosome 6 and chromosome 11 are indicative of a susceptibility to prostate cancer and colon cancer. The invention describes diagnostic applications for determining a susceptibility to cancer using such markers, as well as kits for use in such applications.


Polymorphic variants (e.g., certain alleles of polymorphic markers) that have been found to be associated with high blood eosinophil counts, conditions causative of eosinophilia (e.g., asthma, myocardial infarction), and/or hypertension are provided herein. Such polymorphic markers are useful for diagnostic purposes, such as in methods of determining a susceptility, and for prognostic purposes, including methods of predicting prognosis and methods of assessing an individual for probability of a response to a therapeutic agent, as further described herein. Further applications utilize the polymorphic markers of the invention include, screening methods and genotyping methods. The invention furthermore provides related kits, computer-readable medium, and apparatus.


The invention relates to procedure and methods of determining a susceptibility to cardiac arrhythmia, including Atrial Fibrillation, Atrial Flutter and Stroke, by assessing the presence or absence of alleles at polymorphic markers found to be associated with Atrial Fibrillation, Atrial Flutter and Stroke. The invention further relates to kits encompassing reagents for assessing such markers, and diagnostic methods, uses and procedures for utilizing such susceptibility markers.


Polymorphic variants that have been found to be associated with risk of urinary bladder cancer are provided herein. Such polymorphic markers are useful for diagnostic purposes, such as in methods of determining a susceptibility, and for prognostic purposes, including methods of predicting prognosis and methods of assessing an individual for probability of a response to therapeutic 5 agents, as further described herein. Further applications utilize the polymorphic markers of the invention include screening and genotyping methods. The invention furthermore provides related kits, and computer-readable media and apparatus.
