  • Aim: To investigate the influence of the polymorphic variants of CCND1 (G870A) and p73 (G4C14- to- A4T14) on the susceptibility to breast cancer development, also, to figure out their diagnostic and prognostic roles.

    Subjects and Methods: Blood samples were obtained from breast cancer patients and controls. Genotyping of CCND1 and p73 genes were carried out by PCR-RFLP and PCR-CTPP; respectively.

    Results: In comparison with the control group, CCND1 (G870A) GA and AA genotypes frequencies were significantly higher in breast cancer patients (p=0.035 and p=0.002; respectively), whereas CCND1 (G870A) GG genotype frequency was significantly lower (p< 0.001). The CCND1 GA and AA genotypes significantly increased the risk for developing breast cancer compared with the GG genotype. The CCND1 (GA+AA) genotypes were significantly correlated with disease-free survival (DFS) of breast cancer patients. In comparison with the control group, p73 (G4C14/A4T14) GC/AT and AT/AT genotypes frequencies were significantly higher in breast cancer patients (p=0.013 and p=0.04; respectively), whereas p73 (G4C14/A4T14) GC/GC genotype frequency was significantly lower (p= 0.004).  Compared with the GC/GC genotype, the p73 GC/AT and AT/AT genotypes significantly increased the risk for developing breast cancer. Beside being significantly correlated with DFS, p73 [(GC/AT)+ (AT/AT)] genotypes were indirectly correlated with tumor size, tumor pathological grade, patient's clinical stage, number of axillary lymph node involvement and Her2/neu expression.

    Conclusion: The GA and AA genotypes of CCND1 (G870A) polymorphism and the GC/AT and AT/AT genotypes of p73 (G4C14- to- A4T14) polymorphism can be used as diagnostic markers in breast cancer patients. The presence of the CCND1 (G870A) GA and AA genotypes and the GC/AT and AT/AT genotypes of p73 (G4C14- to- A4T14) polymorphism can increase the susceptibility to breast cancer incidence. Both of CCND1 (G870A) and p73 (G4C14- to- A4T14) polymorphisms can be used for prognosis of breast cancer patients.
