This study aimed to elucidate the impact of PTEN single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) on clinical outcomes for advanced lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) patients treated with platinum-based chemotherapy. Three functional SNPs (rs11202607 G>A, rs701848 A>G, and rs11202592 G>C) of PTEN gene were genotyped by using DNA from blood samples of 618 advanced LAC patients,(More)
Single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) in microRNA (miRNA)-binding sites may modulate the posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression and explain individual sensitivity to platinum agents. This study aimed to investigate the impact of SNPs located at 3'-untranslated region (UTR) of MDM4 gene, on clinical outcomes of advanced non-small cell lung cancer(More)
BRAF mutation is one of the important driver oncogene in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Data on Chinese patients with BRAF-mutant NSCLC are inadequate. Hence, we conducted this study to investigate the clinicopathologic features and outcomes of Chinese patients with NSCLC and BRAF mutations. We identified patients with BRAF-mutant NSCLC between January(More)
Platinum agents induce cancer cell death through BCL2-dependent intrinsic apoptotic pathway and are commonly used as anti-tumor drug. In this study, we evaluated whether single nucleotide polymorphism (SNPs) of BCL2 can affect the overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients treated with(More)
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in China, and about 60% of the cases are diagnosed with histological adenocarcinoma. The caspase 8 (CASP8) gene is a critical initiator of the extrinsic apoptosis pathway. To explore the relationship between tagSNPs or haplotypes of CASP8 and the efficacy of platinum-based chemotherapy in advanced lung(More)
BACKGROUND Cell cycle checkpoint kinase 2 (CHEK2) plays an essential role in the repair of DNA damage. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in DNA repair genes are thought to influence treatment effects and survival of cancer patients. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between polymorphisms in the CHEK2 gene and efficacy of platinum-based(More)
