Here, we genotyped eleven single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and evaluated their association with the risk of developing gastric cancer (GC) or colorectal cancer (CRC) in 1,790 Han Chinese participants (588 GC patients, 499 CRC patients, and 703 healthy controls). Statistically analysis showed that the “C” allele of rs2689154 in MIPEPP2 was associated with a decreased risk of GC (odds ratio [OR] = 0.81, 95 % confidence interval [CI]: 0.66-0.99, P = 0.041), whereas the “T” allele of rs12615966 in LOC284998 was associated with a 1.29-fold increase in the risk of GC (OR = 1.29, 95% CI: 1.03-1.63, P = 0.029). Additionally, genetic model analyses showed that rs2689154 was associated with a reduced risk of GC under the recessive model (adjusted OR = 0.46, 95% CI: 0.22-0.98, P = 0.037), and rs12615966 in FOXF1 was associated with an increased risk of GC in both the dominant and log-additive models after adjusted for age and gender (adjusted OR = 1.36, 95% CI: 1.02-1.81, P = 0.033; adjusted OR = 1.36, 95% CI: 1.05-1.75, P = 0.018, respectively). We also observed that rs2178146 in FOXF1 was associated with an increased risk of CRC in the recessive model (adjusted OR = 1.90, 95% CI: 1.05-3.45, P = 0.034). Our results confirmed that rs2689154 in MIPEPP2 was significantly decreased GC risk, but rs12615966 in LOC284998 was significantly increased GC risk, and rs2178146 in FOXF1 was associated with increased CRC risk in the Han Chinese population.
