Genetically determinedcapacity for NER may modulate both cancer risk and prognosis. Thus, we evaluated associations of seven selected variants in the NER core genes with recurrence risk in 658SCCOP patients treated principally by radiation. The sevenpolymorphisms in the core NERgenes (XPC-rs2228000, XPC-rs2228001, XPD-rs1799793, XPD-rs13181, XPG-rs17655, ERCC1-rs3212986, and XPA-rs1800975)were genotyped using PCR-RFLP methodand log-rank test and multivariable Cox models were used to evaluate the associationsin both dominant and recessive genetic models. In a dominant model, we found that polymorphisms of XPC-rs2228000,XPD-rs1799793, and XPG-rs17655were significantly associated with disease-free survival(log-rank,P =0.014; P = 0.00008; and P = 0.0007, respectively),and these polymorphisms were significantly associated with recurrence risk of SCCOP (HR = 1.6, 95% CI, 1.1-2.3 for XPC-rs2228000; HR =0.4, 95%, 0.3-0.6 for XPD-rs1799793; and HR =0.5, 95% CI, 0.4-0.8 for XPG-rs17655)after multivariable adjustment. Moreover, the borderline significant or significant associations were also found for these three polymorphisms in HPV16/18-positive SCCOP patients (HR= 1.6, 95% CI, 1.0-4.1 for XPC-rs2228000; HR = 0.2, 95%, 0.1-0.5 for XPD-rs1799793; and HR = 0.1, 95% CI, 0.0-0.9 for XPG-rs17655). However, similarly significant associations were not found for these polymorphisms in a recessive model. These findings suggest that polymorphisms of XPC-rs2228000,XPD-rs1799793, and XPG-rs17655in the NER core genes may contribute to recurrence risk of SCCOP, particularly HPV-positive SCCOP, in a dominant but not in a recessive model. However, validation of these results is warranted.
