Abstract

Gallstone disease, a risk factor for biliary cancer, has a strong heritable component, but the underlying genes are largely unknown. To test the hypothesis that ABCG8 (adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette transporter G8) Asp19His (D19H) genotype predicted risk of gallstones and biliary cancer in the general population, we studied 62,279 white individuals from The Copenhagen City Heart Study and The Copenhagen General Population Study, randomly selected to reflect the adult Danish population aged 20 to 80+ years. Endpoints were recorded from January 1976 through May 2009. During a mean follow-up of, respectively, 31 and 4.4 years, 3124 participants developed symptomatic gallstone disease and 30 developed biliary cancer. The multifactorially adjusted hazard ratio for symptomatic gallstone disease was 1.9 (95% confidence interval, 1.7-2.1) in DH heterozygotes (prevalence, 12%), and 3.3 (2.3-4.6) in HH homozygotes (0.4%) versus noncarriers (P for trend
