Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Survival and response to platinum-based induction chemotherapy are heterogeneous among patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma. The aim of the present study was to assess the prognostic role of DNA repair markers, such as excision repair cross-complementation group 1 and ribonucleotide reductase M1, in multimodally treated patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma.
METHODS: Tumor tissue of a malignant pleural mesothelioma cohort (n = 107) treated with platinum/gemcitabine (n = 46) or platinum/pemetrexed (n = 61) induction chemotherapy followed by extrapleural pneumonectomy was assembled on a tissue microarray. Immunohistochemical expression of excision repair cross-complementation group 1 (nuclear) and ribonucleotide reductase M1 (nuclear and cytoplasmic) was assessed for its prognostic impact (association with overall survival or freedom from recurrence).
RESULTS: Patients with high nuclear ribonucleotide reductase M1 expression before chemotherapy showed significantly longer freedom from recurrence (P = .03). When specifically analyzed in the subgroup of patients receiving platinum/gemcitabine followed by extrapleural pneumonectomy, high nuclear ribonucleotide reductase M1 was associated with prolonged freedom from recurrence (P = .03) and overall survival (P = .02). Low excision repair cross-complementation group 1 expression in prechemotherapy tumor tissues was associated with significantly longer freedom from recurrence (P = .04). Nuclear ribonucleotide reductase M1 and excision repair cross-complementation group 1 were independent prognosticators of freedom from recurrence in addition to pT stage in multivariate analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: In the present study, nuclear ribonucleotide reductase M1 and excision repair cross-complementation group 1 expression were identified as independent prognosticators for freedom from recurrence of malignant pleural mesothelioma in patients undergoing induction chemotherapy followed by extrapleural pneumonectomy.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
