Purpose: Genetic factors have been shown to play a remarkable role in the pathophysiology of glaucoma. Recently, two polymorphisms (rs1533428 and rs12994401) on chromosome 2p were found to be strongly associated with POAG in an Afro-Caribbean population in Barbados, West Indies. As data with regard to the role of these polymorphisms in a Caucasian population are lacking, the present study was set to investigate a hypothetical association between these polymorphisms and POAG in a Caucasian population. Methods: In total 723 participants were included in this study comprising 366 patients with POAG and 357 control subjects from the southern part of Austria. Genotyping of rs1533428 and rs12994401 was performed using polymerase chain reaction. Results: Allelic frequencies and genotype distributions of rs1533428 and rs12994401 did not show statistical significance between patients with POAG and control subjects (p < 0.05). Presence of the rs1533428 T-allele was associated with an odds ratio of 0.95 (95% CI: 0.76-1.19; p = 0.69) for POAG, while the rs12994401 T-allele was associated with an odds ratio of 0.94 (95% CI: 0.73-1.21; p = 0.65) for POAG. Conclusion: Our data suggest that rs1533428 and rs12994401 themselves are unlikely major risk factors for POAG in a Central European population.
