Sonic hedgehog (Shh) pathway genetic variations may affect bladder cancer risk and clinical outcomes. Therefore, we genotyped 177 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in 11 Shh pathway genes in a study including 803 bladder cancer cases and 803 controls. We assessed SNP associations with cancer risk and clinical outcomes in 419 cases of non–muscle-invasive bladder cancer (NMIBC) and 318 cases of muscle-invasive and metastatic bladder cancer (MiMBC). Only three SNPs (GLI3 rs3823720, rs3735361, and rs10951671) reached nominal significance in association with risk (P ≤ 0.05), which became nonsignificant after adjusting for multiple comparisons. Nine SNPs reached a nominally significant individual association with recurrence of NMIBC in patients who received transurethral resection (TUR) only (P ≤ 0.05), of which two (SHH rs1233560 and GLI2 rs11685068) were replicated independently in 356 TUR-only NMIBC patients, with P values of 1.0 x 10–3 (SHH rs1233560) and 1.3 x 10–3 (GLI2 rs11685068). Nine SNPs also reached a nominally significant individual association with clinical outcome of NMIBC patients who received Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG; P ≤ 0.05), of which two, the independent GLI3 variants rs6463089 and rs3801192, remained significant after adjusting for multiple comparisons (P = 2 x 10–4 and 9 x 10–4, respectively). The wild-type genotype of either of these SNPs was associated with a lower recurrence rate and longer recurrence-free survival (versus the variants). Although three SNPs (GLI2 rs735557, GLI2 rs4848632, and SHH rs208684) showed nominal significance in association with overall survival in MiMBC patients (P ≤ 0.05), none remained significant after multiple-comparison adjustments. Germ-line genetic variations in the Shh pathway predicted clinical outcomes of TUR and BCG for NMIBC patients. Cancer Prev Res; 3(10); 1235–45. ©2010 AACR.

We took a polygenic approach to evaluate the effects of 41 potentially functional single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in microRNAs (miRNAs)-related genes on survival and recurrence among renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients. During a median follow-up of 21.8 months, among 316 RCC patients, 64 died and 56 developed recurrence. In single-SNP analysis, we identified seven SNPs significantly associated with RCC survival and five SNPs with recurrence. The most significant associations were SNPs in GEMIN4 with the variant alleles of both rs7813 and rs910925 associated with 1.74-fold [95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.15–2.62] increased risk of death, whereas the variant allele of rs3744741 conferred a decreased risk of death [hazard ratio (HR) = 0.39; 95% CI = 0.19–0.77]. Several SNPs belonging to the pre-miRNA and were identified to be significantly associated with RCC recurrence. Haplotypes of DICER and DROSHA were also associated with altered patient survival and recurrence. More importantly, we observed cumulative effects of multiple SNPs on RCC survival. Compared with subjects carrying zero to two unfavorable genotypes, those carrying three to five and six and more unfavorable genotypes had an increased risk of death with a HR of 2.49 (95% CI = 1.24–5.00) and 6.66 (95% CI = 2.49–17.86), respectively, with significant dose–response trend (P for trend<0.001). As the first study of miRNA-related genetic polymorphisms on RCC clinical outcome, our results strongly suggested that miRNA-related SNPs may impact the recurrence and survival in RCC patients. Future investigation in larger populations and functional characterizations are necessary to validate these results.
