[Articles] Genetic risk of extranodal natural killer T-cell lymphoma: a genome-wide association study in multiple populations

Our findings provide new insights into the development of NKTCL by showing the importance of inflammation and immune regulation through the IL18–IL18RAP axis and antigen presentation involving HLA-DRB1, which might help to identify potential therapeutic targets. Taken in combination with additional genetic and other risk factors, our results could potentially be used to stratify people at high risk of NKTCL for targeted prevention.
