Brief description Genes negatively correlated with recurrence free survival in patients with hepatitis B-related (HBV) hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
Full description or abstract PURPOSE: The poor prognosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is, in part, due to the high rate of recurrence even after curative resection of tumors. Therefore, it is axiomatic that the development of an effective prognostic prediction model for HCC recurrence after surgery would, at minimum, help to identify in advance those who would most benefit from the treatment, and at best, provide new therapeutic strategies for patients with a high risk of early recurrence. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: For the prediction of the recurrence time in patients with HCC, gene expression profiles were generated in 65 HCC patients with hepatitis B infections. RESULT: Recurrence-associated gene expression signatures successfully discriminated between patients at high-risk and low-risk of early recurrence (P=1.9 x 10(-6), log-rank test). To test the consistency and robustness of the recurrence signature, we validated its prognostic power in an independent HCC microarray data set. CD24 was identified as a putative biomarker for the prediction of early recurrence. Genetic network analysis suggested that SP1 and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-alpha might have regulatory roles for the early recurrence of HCC. CONCLUSION: We have identified a gene expression signature that effectively predicted early recurrence of HCC independent of microarray platforms and cohorts, and provided novel biological insights into the mechanisms of tumor recurrence.
