      Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have indicated that most of the currently identified disease- and trait-associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are intronic or intergenic. RegulomeDB is a recently developed database that provides functional annotations for regulatory features of SNPs located in non-coding regions.

      We evaluated the potential regulatory SNPs in the EGFR gene region using RegulomeDB and their associations with prognosis after surgery in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients. A total of 698 patients with surgically resected NSCLC were enrolled and seven SNPs were selected based on RegulomeDB database. All SNPs were genotyped using SEQUENOM’s MassARRAY® iPLEX assay.

      Among the seven SNPs evaluated, the rs9642391 (EGFR ivs19+2851C>G) was found to be significantly associated with survival outcomes (adjusted HR for overall survival = 0.70, 95% CI = 0.56-0.87, P = 0.001; and adjusted HR for disease free survival = 0.82, 95% CI = 0.70-0.97, P = 0.02; under codominant model). According to RegulomeDB, the rs9642391C>G, which is located in intron 19 of EGFR, was predicted to influence the expression of glioblastoma amplified sequence (GBAS), but not EGFR. As predicted, the rs9642391C>G was associated with GBAS mRNA expression (P=0.024), but not EGFR mRNA expression in tumor tissues.

      In conclusion, our study provided evidence that the rs9642391C>G in the intron of EGFR is associated with GBAS expression and survival outcomes of patients with surgically resected early-stage NSCLC.
