This study found that the functional cytotoxic T lymphocyte–associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) 49G-to-A single-nucleotide polymorphism is significantly associated with increased risk of pancreatic cancer, alone and in a multiplicative gene–age, gene–smoking, or gene–drinking interaction manner. Therefore, this functional genetic variation may have tremendous implications for pancreatic cancer and be used for identifying individuals at high risk for developing pancreatic cancer.
