Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the potential prognostic roles of polymorphisms in the X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1 (XPCC1), xeroderma pigmentosum group D (XPD) and excision repair cross-complementing group 1 (ERCC1) genes for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) receiving transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE).

METHODS:

Clinical data and blood samples from 308 HCC patients receiving TACE were collected between January 2010 and December 2013. Polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RLFP) analyses was used to determine the genotypes of the XPCC1 (rs25487), XPD (rs13181) and ERCC1 (rs11615) genes. The relationships between the genotypes and the efficacy of TACE treatment were analyzed.

RESULTS:

The XRCCI rs25487 polymorphism was associated with a favorable prognosis in HCC patients receiving TACE (p = 0.006), and patients carrying variant genotypes (A/A + G/A) were associated with significantly reduced risk of death compared with those with the wild genotype (G/G) (HR = 0.556; 95% CI = 0.354-0.874). These findings were supported by Kaplan-Meier survival curve analysis showing that median survival time for patients with A/A + G/A genotypes was significantly longer compared with those with the G/G genotype (11.2 month vs. 8.0 months; log rank p = 0.006). Stratified analyses revealed that A/A + G/A genotypes of XRCC1 rs25487 are associated with significantly reduced risk of death compared with the G/G genotype in patients grouped by tumor size, portal vein tumor thrombus (PVTT), alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and TNM stage (all p < 0.05). The ERCC1 rs13181 and XPD rs11615 polymorphisms were not predictive of clinical outcome for HCC patients receiving TACE (both p > 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

The XRCC1 rs25487 polymorphisms are prognostic for HCC patients receiving TACE. The ERCC1 and XPD polymorphisms had no relationship to the clinical outcomes.
