ABSTRACT
Purpose: We investigated whether single nucleotide polymorphism of excision repair cross-complementation group 1 C8092A affected the clinical outcomes and toxicity in advanced stage non-small cell lung cancer patients receiving first line platinum based chemotherapy.Material/Methods: A total of 300 chemotherapy treated patients were examined for C8092A genotypes in peripheral blood samples.Results: Overall response rate was 33.6% and median overall survival was 13.5 months. There was no significant correlation between C8092A single nucleotide polymorphism and overall survival, tumor response or toxicity for platinum-based chemotherapy.Conclusions: Excision repair cross-complementing group 1 (ERCC1) showed controversial results in different studies that have been carried out until now. In our Chinese population there is no correlation between ERCC1 C8092A SNP and efficacy or toxicity. Ethnicity could be a possible explanation for these controversial results.
