We have previously shown that the functional melanoma risk variant rs12203592 in interferon regulatory factor-4 (IRF4) was associated with increased Breslow thickness, an important prognostic indicator for melanoma. In line with this, a recent study found evidence for an association between the minor T allele of this single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and melanoma-specific survival in patients from two European hospitals.
