      • Abstract

      With the rapid advances of LDCT screening for lung cancer, the opportunity to detect subcentimeter NSCLC is gradually increasing. But, even subcentimeter NSCLCs are not always in the early stage. Thus, it is quite important for us to judge the possibility of malignancy for these patients, even the tumor size is less than 10 mm. Chronic inflammation is well established as a hallmark in lung carcinogenesis. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the correlation between inflammation biomarkers and the risk for subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma.

      Inflammatory biomarkers were measured in 71 subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma patients and 71 age-, sex- and smoking-matched healthy controls by using the Luminex bead-based assay.

      The expression level of TNFRII is significantly down-regulated in subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma patients compared with the healthy controls (P < 0.001). And the results were validated by oncomine data mining analysis. Elevated levels of TNFRII were associated with an 89% reduced risk for subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma. (OR = 0.11, 95% CI: 0.04–0.30, P = 2.4 × 10[−5]). BLC was associated with a 2.70-fold (95% CI: 1.31–5.58, P = 7.0 × 10[−3]) increased risk of subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma for the comparison of patients in the higher-level group with the lower-level group. To yield more information, the BLC/TNFRII ratio was created to examine their prediction for the risk of subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma, and there was a 35-fold increased risk for patients in the higher-level group relative to patients in the lower-level group. Further ROC curve analysis revealed that TNFRII was a significant diagnostic biomarker for subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma, with the area under the curve of 0.73 (95% CI: 0.65–0.82, P = 2.0 × 10[−6]). The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy were 0.75, 0.72 and 0.73, respectively.

      Our findings demonstrated that TNFRII was associated with the significant risk of subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma and could be a promising biomarker for accessorily diagnosing subcentimeter lung adenocarcinoma.
