AB - BackgroundForced Vital Capacity (FVC) is an important predictor of all-cause mortality in the absenceof chronic respiratory conditions. Epidemiological evidence highlights the role of early lifefactors on adult FVC, pointing to environmental exposures and genes affecting lung developmentas risk factors for low FVC later in life. Although highly heritable, a small number ofgenes have been found associated with FVC, and we aimed at identifying further geneticvariants by focusing on lung development genes.PLOS ONE | DOI:10.1371/journal.pone.0147388 February 2, 2016 1 / 17OPEN ACCESSCitation: Minelli C, Dean CH, Hind M, Alves AC,Amaral AFS, Siroux V, et al.

The most significant SNP forthe top 25 genes was followed-up in 46,103 adults (CHARGE and SpiroMeta consortia) and5,062 children (ALSPAC). Associations were considered replicated if the replication p-valuesurvived Bonferroni correction (p<0.002; 0.05/25), with a nominal p-value considered assuggestive evidence.
