PURPOSE: To develop predictive tests for individual radiosensitivity of tumor patients. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Acute skin reactions were clinically scored among 40 women after 46 Gy, given with 2 Gy fractions to breast and regional lymph nodes, adjuvant after surgery. The acute skin reactions were compared to the excretion of 7,8-dihydro-8-oxo-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxo-dG) in urine, determined by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with electrochemical detector. Specimens of urine were collected before and during postoperative radiation treatment at given intervals. We compared a group of 9 patients with the most pronounced skin reactions with another group of 8 patients with almost no skin reactions at 46 Gy. RESULTS: The level of 8-oxo-dG excreted in urine during 8 h was measured. After normalizing the excretion to irradiated volumes, dose per volume and excretion before irradiation, the 8-oxo-dG level in urine was significantly (p < 0.001) lower for the patients with pronounced skin reactions as compared to patients with minor skin reactions, at an accumulated dose of 12 Gy. In addition, the background level of 8-oxo-dG excreted before treatment started, was significantly (p = 0.043) lower for patients with minor skin reactions as compared to patients with pronounced skin reactions. The background level of 8-oxo-dG was corrected for body weight and normalized to BMI. CONCLUSION: We suggest that the excretion of 8-oxo-dG into urine of breast cancer patients is a possible marker for acute radiosensitivity.
