rs1417938 is a SNP linked to the CRP gene. It is significantly associated with the C-reactive protein (CRP) levels in the blood.
''A'' allele was associated with a reduced risk of CpG island methylator phenotype (CIMP)+ rectal tumors (OR 0.5) [R].
Fenofibrate-induced the greatest reduction in C-reactive protein (CRP) levels for TT subjects compared with TA and AA subjects (P = 0.004) [R].
A significant increase in the frequency of heterozygote A/T was seen in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA) (OR = 1.70; p = 0.03) [R].
