Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common type of lung cancer. The prognosis of NSCLC is extremely poor and it is urgently to find a new marker. Numerous studies have confirmed that silent mating type information regulation 2 homolog-1 (sirtuin1; SIRT1) is abnormally expressed in NSCLC. This meta-analysis was performed to investigate the prognostic and clinicopathological significance of SIRT1 in NSCLC. A total of seven eligible studies, including 6 on clinicopathological features, 7 on prognosis were identified from the databases. Pooled hazard ratios (HRs) or odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) were calculated using random- or fixed-effects models. Results revealed that high expression of SIRT1 was associated with poor overall survival in NSCLC patients (HR=1.99, 95% CI: 1.33-2.98, P=0.0009). Moreover, SIRT1 were related to histological grade (OR= 2.00, 95% CI= 1.05–3.78, P= 0.02) of NSCLC patients. In conclusion, our present meta-analysis indicated that SIRT1 may serve as a promising marker for prognosis of patients with NSCLC.
