Single-nucleotide polymorphisms within the BAT1-NFKBIL1-LTA genomic region (6p21.3) and the LGALS2 gene (22q13.1), encoding a regulator for lymphotoxin-alpha, the product of the LTA gene, have been reported to be linked with the risk of myocardial infarction in Japanese. We employed nine polymorphisms from the BAT1-NFKBIL1-LTA region and one polymorphism from the LGALS2 gene, and investigated whether such associations were also present in Europeans. The study included 3657 patients with myocardial infarction and 1211 control individuals with angiographically normal coronary arteries. Minor homozygous genotypes of polymorphisms in BAT1 (rs2239527, -23C/G), NFKBIL1 (rs2071592, -63T/A) and LTA (rs1800683, -162G/A; rs909253, 252G/A; rs1041981, Thr26Asn) were associated with moderately protective effects against myocardial infarction (P
