Background: Exposure to cigarette smoking (CS) is a major risk factor for the development oflung cancer. CS is known to cause oxidative DNA damage and mutation of tumor-related genes,and these factors are involved in carcinogenesis. 8-Hydroxydeoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) is consideredto be a reliable biomarker for oxidative DNA damage. Increased levels of 8-OHdG are associatedwith a number of pathological conditions, including cancer. There are no reports on the expressionof 8-OHdG by immunohistochemistry in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
Methods:We investigated the expression of 8-OHdG and p53 in 203 NSCLC tissues using immunohistochemistryand correlated it with clinicopathological features including smoking.
Results: The expressionof 8-OHdG was observed in 83.3% of NSCLC. It was significantly correlated with a lowT category, negative lymph node status, never-smoker, and longer overall survival (p < .05) by univariateanalysis. But multivariate analysis revealed that 8-OHdG was not an independent prognosticfactor for overall survival in NSCLC patients. The aberrant expression of p53 significantlycorrelated with smoking, male, squamous cell carcinoma, and Ki-67 positivity (p < .05).
Conclusions:The expression of 8-OHdG was associated with good prognostic factors. It was positivelycorrelated with never-smokers in NSCLC, suggesting that oxidative damage of DNA cannot beexplained by smoking alone and may depend on complex control mechanisms.
