      • Slides


      Lung cancer is still the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both sexes in China and worldwide. Although many surgically resected patients shared the same histology and pathologic TNM stage, their prognosis had varied a lot. For within the stage-Ipatients who had received radical surgery of lung cancer, nearly one-third of them suffered from postoperative relapse or distant metastasis. In the present study, we sought to investigate the potential interrelationships of expression of RUNX3, H3K27me3 and its methyltransferase EZH2 in NSCLC patients, their correlation with clinicopathologic parameters, and the prognostic significance as well.

      A total of 208 NSCLC patients and block samples who had never received other therapies before were collected and built into tissue microarrays (TMA). Protein level of RUNX3, H3K27me3, EZH2 were detected and evaluated with immunohistochemistryand western blotting to determine their expressions and mutual correlations.

      Co-expression of RUNX3 and H3K27me3 stood a vital significance in the prediction of better outcome and longer OS in early-stage NSCLC, especially pTNM stage-I(P = 0.0124). Correlation analysis demonstrated that non-coexpression of RUNX3 and H3K27me3 was significantly associated with male sex (P = 0.037), high ECOG PS (P = 0.000), smoker (P = 0.001), postoperative relapse (P = 0.000), postoperative distant metastasis (P = 0.048), non-nuclear expression of RUNX3 (P = 0.000) and low EZH2 expression (P = 0.016) while had nothing to do with age (P = 0.918), histology (P = 0.145), BMI (P = 0.300), lymphatic vessels involvement (P = 0.246), pleural involvement (P = 0.811), vascular involvement (P = 0.144), T staging (P = 0.189), lymph node involvement (P = 0.152), mediastinal lymph node involvement (P = 0.608), M staging (P = 0.667), TNM staging (P = 0.227, P = 0.231), resectibility (P = 0.850), depth of invasion (P = 0.245), serum CEA level (P = 0.174) or Ki-67 expression (P = 0.947).

      Coexpression of RUNX3 and H3K27me3 is a good marker as survival gain to discriminiate whether or not TNM stage-INSCLC patients would have a better survival.
