It has been demonstrated that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of SIPA1 (signal-induced proliferation associated gene 1) are associated with metastatic efficiency in both human and rodents. The purpose of this study was to determine whether SIPA1 545 C > T polymorphism was associated with overall survival in patients with metastatic breast cancer. In this study, SIPA1 545 C > T polymorphism was detected in 185 metastatic breast cancer patients using polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism assay (PCR-RFLP). Survival curves for patients with SIPA1 545 C > T polymorphism was compared using the Kaplan-Meier method with log-rank tests. We found that SIPA1 545 C > T polymorphism was significantly associated with survival in 185 patients with metastatic breast cancer. Patients with SIPA1 545 T/T genotype had a significantly worse overall survival (OS) than did patients with C/T or C/C genotype (50.0% vs. 62.9%, P = 0.042). Moreover, in multivariate analysis, as compared with the C/C or C/T genotype, the T/T genotype remained an independent unfavorable prognostic marker of OS in this cohort (hazard ratio [HR] = 2.16; 95% CI = 1.12-4.15; P = 0.022). Our findings indicate that metastatic breast cancer patients with SIPA1 545 T/T genotype have a poorer survival compared to patients with C/C or C/T genotype.
