The information will be highly relevant to the design of larger confirmatory clinical studies in the future. Furthermore, the array methodology can be directly and immediately translated to high-throughput population-based testing. If CGPs can be identified as predictive risk markers or prognostic markers in lung cancer, then screening methods can be developed to screen for high-risk individuals before the development of lung cancer; furthermore, if SNPs correlate with clinical response, then use of SNPs genotyping to guide therapeutic interventions can be incorporated into the management care plan of the patient.

Once an association is identified the issue for investigators is to determine what the association tells us about the disease process. When confirmed by numerous studies, the possibility of he association being a statistical artifact is remote. We are then left with two explanations: the associated allele plays a causative role in the disorder or the allele is in linkage disequilibrium with another locus(polymorphism) which does play a role. In order to truly understand the disorder we will have to distinguish between these, but how?

Genome-wide SNP scanning has the potential to isolate the quantitative trait loci involved in complex disorders. It was estimated that a genomic region that contributes 5 percent or more to a disease could be localized to a 3 kb sequence with a SNP association analysis involving 500 individuals and 500,000 SNP markers across the whole genome. Since the Human Genome Project will soon generate the complete human genome sequence, and there are various public and private efforts to develop high-density human SNP markers, the framework required for genome-wide SNP scanning will quickly be established.
