Abstract

Purpose

Approximately, 30% patients after radical prostatectomy (RP) will undergo post-operative biochemical recurrence (BCR). Present stratification method by TNM staging and Gleason score was not adequate to screen high-risk patients. In this study, we intended to identify a novel set of differentially expressed gene (DEG) signature that can predict BCR after RP.

Materials/patients

358 patients after RP with follow-up data were extracted from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), among which 61 patients had undergone BCR. Key DEGs were confirmed by the intersection of GSE35988 and TCGA_PCa dataset, and their gene expression data were also extracted from TCGA_PCa dataset. Kaplan–Meier plot and Cox proportion hazard regression model were applied to assess the relationship between risk score and survival outcome (BCR).

Results

310 DEGs were confirmed in two prostate cancer dataset. 6 DEGs (SMIM22, NINL, NRG2, TOP2A, REPS2, and TPCN2) were selected to construct a risk score formula. The risk score was a powerful predictive factor independent of TNM stage (HR 3.045, 95% CI 1.655–5.602, p < 0.001).

Conclusion

In this study, a novel 6-gene signature with robust predictive ability on post-operative BCR was constructed and 4 genes (SMIM22, NRG2, NINL and TPCN2) in the 6-gene signature were not reported to be associated with prostate cancer.
