To identify susceptibility loci for meningioma, we conducted a genome-wide association study of 859 affected individuals (cases) and 704 controls with validation in two independent sample sets totaling 774 cases and 1,764 controls. We identified a new susceptibility locus for meningioma at 10p12.31 (MLLT10, rs11012732, odds ratio = 1.46, Pcombined = 1.88 × 10−14). This finding advances our understanding of the genetic basis of meningioma development.

Cancer Research UK (C1298/A8362 supported by the Bobby Moore Fund) provided principal funding for the study. Additional support for the UK study was provided by the DJ Fielding Medical Research Trust. We acknowledge National Health Service (NHS) funding to the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre.
The UK, Swedish and Danish INTERPHONE studies were supported by the European Union Fifth Framework Program 'Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources' (contract number QLK4-CT-1999-01563) and the International Union against Cancer (UICC). The UICC received funds for this purpose from the Mobile Manufacturers' Forum and Global System for Mobile Communications Association. Provision of funds from the UICC was governed by agreements that guaranteed INTERPHONE's complete scientific independence. These agreements are publicly available at http://www.iarc.fr/en/research-groups/RAD/RCAd.html. The Swedish INTERPHONE center was also supported by the Swedish Research Council, the Cancer Foundation of Northern Sweden, the Swedish Cancer Society and the Nordic Cancer Union, and the Danish center was supported by the Danish Cancer Society. The UK centers were also supported by the Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research (MTHR) Programme, and the Northern UK center was supported by the Health and Safety Executive, Department of Health and Safety Executive and the UK Network Operators (O2, Orange, T-Mobile, Vodafone and '3'). A.A. received support from the Emil Aaltonen Foundation. We acknowledge the participation of the clinicians and other hospital staff, cancer registries and study staff who contributed to the blood sample and data collection for this study (as detailed in ref. 14).
In Germany, funding was provided to M.S. and J.S. by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Si 552, Schr 285), the Deutsche Krebshilfe (70-2385-Wi2, 70-3163-Wi3, 10-6262) and BONFOR. We are indebted to R. Mahlberg (Bonn), who provided technical support.
The GWAS made use of genotyping data from the population-based HNR study. The HNR study is supported by the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation (Germany). Additionally, the study is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Science and the German Research Council (DFG; Project SI 236/8-1, SI236/9-1, ER 155/6-1). Funding was provided to L.E. by the Medical Faculty of the University Hospital of Essen (IFORES). The genotyping of the Illumina HumanOmni-1 Quad BeadChips of the HNR subjects was financed by the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Disorders (DZNE), Bonn. We are extremely grateful to all investigators who contributed to the generation of this dataset.
Finally, we are grateful to all subjects and individuals for their participation, and we would also like to thank the clinicians and other hospital staff, cancer registries and study staff in respective centers who contributed to the blood sample and data collection.
