ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of a polymorphism rs4705341 in the flanking region of miR-143/145 on the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC). The rs4705341 polymorphism was analyzed in 1002 cases and 1062 controls using a polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism method. We found a significantly reduced CRC susceptibility with miR-143/145 rs4705341 in homozygote comparison (adjusted OR = 0.66, 95%CI, 0.50-0.88, P = 0.004), dominant genetic model (adjusted OR = 0.80, 95%CI, 0.67-0.96, P = 0.015), recessive genetic model (adjusted OR = 0.73, 95%CI, 0.56-0.94, P = 0.016), and allele comparison (adjusted OR = 0.83, 95%CI, 0.73-0.94, P = 0.004). Stratification analysis showed that the rs4705341 was related to differentiated status, clinical stage I-II, and patients without lymph node metastasis. Moreover, patients with rs4705341GG had a longer overall survival (adjusted HR = 5.57, 95%CI, 0.95-32.68). These findings indicate that the miR-143/145 rs4705341 may be used as a potential biomarker for the development and prognosis of CRC.
