Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the DNA repair genes are believed to contribute to the clinical outcome of patients receiving platinum-based chemotherapy. We investigated the impact of 2 SNPs of excision repair cross-complementation group 1 and 2 of xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group G on the outcome in patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated with platinum-based chemotherapy.
Between October 2007 and March 2012, we collected 374 blood samples from consecutive patients registered in the TAILOR trial. Four SNPs (rs11615, rs3212986, rs17655, rs1047768) were genotyped using real-time polymerase chain reaction.
The rs11615 polymorphism was associated with histotype (p = 0.0123). No other correlations were found with clinical variables or with
The findings suggest that the investigated SNPs do not make any significant contribution to the outcome of NSCLC.
