ABSTRACT We evaluated the association between polymorphisms of cytochrome P450 2A6 (CYP2A6)/excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (ERCC1)/X-ray repair cross-complementing group 1(XRCC1) and treatment outcomes of metastatic gastric cancer (MGC) patients treated with S-1/cisplatin.
Among MGC patients (n=108), who received S-1 (40 mg m(-2) b.i.d., days 1-14) and cisplatin (60 mg m(-2), day 1) every 3 weeks, we analysed the wild-type allele (W) and variants (V) of CYP2A6 (*4, *7, *9, *10), and the polymorphisms of ERCC1 (rs11615, rs3212986) and XRCC1 (rs25487).
Patients having fewer CYP2A6 variants had better response rates (W/W vs W/V other than *1/*4 vs V/V or *1/*4=66.7 vs 58.3 vs 32.3%; P=0.008), time to progression (TTP) (7.2 vs 6.1 vs 3.5 months, P=0.021), and overall survival (23.2 vs 15.4 vs 12.0 months, P=0.004). ERCC1 19442C>A (rs3212986) was also associated with response rate (C/C, 46.7% vs C/A, 55.3% vs A/A, 87.5%) (P=0.048) and TTP (4.4 vs 7.6 vs 7.9 months) (P=0.012). Patients carrying both risk genotypes of CYP2A6 (V/V or 1/*4) and ERCC1 19442C>A (C/C) vs those carrying none showed an adjusted odds ratio of 0.113 (P=0.004) for response, and adjusted hazard ratios of 3.748 (P=0.0001) for TTP and 2.961 (P=0.006) for death.
Polymorphisms of CYP2A6 and ERCC1 19442C>A correlated with the efficacy of S-1/cisplatin.

    ABSTRACT: Gastric cancer (GC) is often diagnosed at later stages due to the lack of specificity of symptoms associated with the neoplasm, causing high mortality rates worldwide. The first line of adjuvant and neoadjuvant treatment includes cytotoxic fluoropyrimidines and platin-containing compounds which cause the formation of DNA adducts. The clinical outcome with these antineoplastic agents depends mainly on tumor sensitivity, which is conditioned by the expression level of the drug targets and the DNA-repair system enzymes. In addition, some germ line polymorphisms, in genes linked to drug metabolism and response to chemotherapy, have been associated with poor responses and the development of adverse effects, even with fatal outcomes in GC patients. The identification of genomic biomarkers, such as individual gene polymorphisms or differential expression patterns of specific genes, in a patient-by-patient context with potential clinical application is the main focus of current pharmacogenomic research, which aims at developing a rational and personalized therapy (i.e., a therapy that ensures maximum efficacy with no predictable side effects). However, because of the future application of genomic technologies in the clinical setting, it is necessary to establish the prognostic value of these genomic biomarkers with genotype-phenotype association studies and to evaluate their prevalence in the population under treatment. These issues are important for their cost-effectiveness evaluation, which determines the feasibility of using these medical genomic research products for GC treatment in the clinical setting.

    ABSTRACT: No effective biomarkers have been confirmed to predict chemosensitivity for patients with gastric cancer. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether DNA methylation is associated with chemosensitivity in patients with gastric cancer. Tumors and matched non-tumor biopsy tissues collected from 134 advanced gastric cancer (AGC) patients prior to fluorouracil-based chemotherapy were retrospectively analyzed. The methylation status of p16, E-cadherin (CDH1), MGMT (O-6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase), and human mutL homolog 1 (hMLH1) was evaluated using a Methylight assay, and the association between p16 methylation and the sensitivity of 5-fluorouracil in cell lines was determined by in vitro assay. The methylation of p16 (17.9 vs. 0 %, P = 0.002), CDH1 (20.9 vs. 2.2 %, P < 0.001), MGMT (17.9 vs. 0 %, P = 0.052), and hMLH1 (14.9 vs. 2.2 %, P = 0.024) was more common in gastric cancer tissues (n = 134) than in non-tumor tissues (n = 46). For all patients, a reverse correlation was only found between p16 methylation and clinical response (P = 0.017), which suggested that p16 methylation might be associated with chemosensitivity of fluorouracil in gastric cancer patients. Results from in vitro experiments demonstrated that p16 methylation was closely correlated with the sensitivity of 5-fluorouracil in gastric cancer cells. The present results indicated that the methylation of p16, CDH1, MGMT, and hMLH1 was both frequent and specific in gastric cancer tissues. p16 Methylation might be used to predict chemosensitivity of fluorouracil for patients with AGC when validated in large samples in the future.
