Laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC) is one of the most common and aggressive malignancies in the upper digestive tract that has a high mortality rate and a poor prognosis. Prognostic factors were determined through multivariate Cox regression analysis. The overall survival rates were calculated by the Kaplan-Meier method. The SPSS statistical software package version 17.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) was used for all analyses. Median follow-up was 38 (range 3-122) months and the median survival time was 48 months. We adjusted to confounding factors (total laryngectomy, poor differentiation, T3-T4 stage, N1-N2 stage, III-IV TNM stage) into multivariate Cox proportional hazards model, we confirmed rs11903757 GT genotype (HR = 2.036; 95% CI, 1.071 - 3.872; p = 0.030) and rs966423 TT genotype (HR = 11.677; 95% CI, 3.901 - 34.950; p = 0.000) were significantly correlated with prognostic survival of patients with LSCC compared with rs11903757 TT genotype and rs966423 CC genotype, respectively. Our research provided new evidence for patients with LSCC, it seemed to be the first that demonstrated rs11903757 GT genotype on chromosome 2q32.3 close to NABP1 and rs966423 TT genotype in the intron region of DIRC3 on chromosome 2q35 pr...Continue Reading
