Occurrence and development of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a complex process affected both by gene and environment. Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in microRNAs’ (miRNAs) biogenesis influenced the expression of mature miRNAs, further had an impact on risk of NSCLC. Our study focused on the correlation between rs213210, rs421446 or rs107822 polymorphisms in pri-miR-219-1 and susceptibility or prognosis of NSCLC in Chinese. A case-control study of 405 new-diagnosis patients and 405 controls was performed. Ten ml venous blood from each subject was collected for genotype test via using TaqMan allelic discrimination methodology and SPSS was performed for statistical analyses. We found that CC genotype in rs213210 (OR=3.462, 95%CI=2.222-5.394, P<0.001) compared with TT genotype and GG genotype in rs107822 (OR=3.553, 95%CI=2.329-5.419, P<0.001) compared with AA genotype showed significantly increased risk of NSCLC. Haplotype analysis showed that pri-miR-219-1 haplotype Crs213210Crs421446Grs107822 was a dangerous haplotype for lung cancer. And polymorphisms in pri-miR-219-1 have showed no relationship with overall survival of NSCLC. Overall, these findings firstly showed that rs213210 and rs107822 could be meaningful as genetic markers for lung cancer risk.
