Abstract/OtherAbstract:
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate loss of heterozygosity (LOH) using microsatellite polymorphism analysis as a diagnostic and prognostic marker at the time of transurethral resection and as a follow-up marker preceding cystoscopic evidence of recurrence compared with cytology. METHODS: A total of 127 urothelial carcinoma (UC) patients were included. Tumors were staged and graded according to the International Union Against Cancer-tumor, node, metastases system and to the 2004 World Health Organization classification. LOH urinalysis was performed using 8 markers and marker-specific LOH thresholds. Thirty control samples, obtained from healthy volunteers, were used to determine the positive cut-off for each marker. RESULTS: LOH was significantly more sensitive than cytology in low-grade (64.8% vs 38.5%, P <.001) and low-stage UC (68.6% vs 45.5%, P <.001). The cumulative sensitivity of cytology and LOH reached 74.7% (P <.001) for low-grade and 80.2% (P <.001) for low-stage tumors. Both urinary LOH at TP53 and chromosome 9p markers were associated with an increased risk of recurrence (relative risk = 1.73 [1.30-2.31], P = .0002) and occurred more frequently in the initial urine samples of patients who later relapsed from primary tumors (36.4% vs 0.0%, P <.05 and 57.6% vs 15.8%, P = .0001). Among 32 relapse patients, LOH was positive alongside cystoscopy in 25 of 32 cases and tested positive before cystoscopy detected recurrence in a further 5 of 25 cases. CONCLUSIONS: UC diagnosis and monitoring would greatly benefit from supplementing conventional cytology with LOH urinalysis, using a panel of 8 microsatellite markers with specific threshold levels. Given the limitations of both cystoscopy and cytology, novel molecular markers are needed for detection and follow-up of UC.
