The ''C'' allele was associated with an increased risk of  acute myocardial infarction (AMI) (P≤0.039), while the ''G'' allele showed a protective effect in a population of European, mainly with German ancestry (90%)  [R].

The CC genotype was significantly associated with lower levels of IL-18 [R].
