The results of genome-wide association studies on lung cancer susceptibility were replicated in a Korean population. The associations between SNP in the 5p15 and 15q25 chromosomal regions and lung cancer risk were confirmed, providing credible evidence that these genetic variants influence susceptibility to lung cancer.
