Impact of epidermal growth factor single-nucleotide polymorphism on recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma after hepatectomy in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus infection.

Yoshiya S, Fujimoto Y, Bekki Y, Konishi H, Yamashita Y, Ikegami T, Yoshizumi T, Shirabe K, Oda Y, Maehara Y - Cancer Sci. (2014)

Bottom Line: Epidermal growth factor (EGF) gene single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is associated with an increased risk of hepatic tumors.The AA group had significantly higher recurrence-free survival than the AG/GG group (P = 0.04), but there was no significant difference in overall survival between these two groups (P = 0.97).High versus low EGFR expression analyzed by immunohistochemical staining in cancer cells was not significantly associated with overall survival (P = 0.37) or recurrence-free survival (P = 0.39).

Comparisons of serum epidermal growth factor (EGF) concentration. (a) There was a significant difference in serum EGF concentration among the three genotypes (P = 0.01). (b) The AA group had a significantly lower serum EGF concentration than the AG/GG group (P = 0.02).

fig02: Comparisons of serum epidermal growth factor (EGF) concentration. (a) There was a significant difference in serum EGF concentration among the three genotypes (P = 0.01). (b) The AA group had a significantly lower serum EGF concentration than the AG/GG group (P = 0.02).

Mentions: The serum EGF concentration was 47.9 ± 34.6 pg/mL in patients carrying GG, 36.8 ± 21.9 pg/mL in patients carrying AG, and 26.3 ± 15.9 pg/mL in patients carrying AA (P = 0.01; Fig.2a). The AA group had a significantly lower serum EGF concentration than the AG/GG group (26.3 ± 15.9 pg/mL vs 43.4 ± 30.5 pg/mL, P = 0.02; Fig.2b). Recurrence was divided into early type (within 2 years after surgery) and late type. The AA group had a significantly lower proportion of early type recurrence than the AG/GG group (28.6% vs 71.2%, P = 0.03, Table2).
