Predictive polygenic score for outcome after first-line oxaliplatin-based chemotherapy in colorectal cancer patients using supervised principal component analysis.
Associations between candidate germline genetic variants and treatment outcome of oxaliplatin, a drug commonly used for colorectal cancer patients, have been reported but not robustly established. This study aimed to construct polygenic hazard scores (PHSs) as predictive markers for oxaliplatin treatment outcome by using a supervised principal component approach (PCA).Genome-wide association analysis for overall survival, including interaction terms (SNP*treatment type) was carried out using two phase III trials, 3,098 resected stage III colon cancer (rCC) patients of NCCTG N0147 and 506 metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients of NCCTG N9741, separately.

Genetically predicted circulating C-reactive protein concentration and colorectal cancer survival: A Mendelian randomization consortium study.
A positive association between circulating C-reactive protein (CRP) and colorectal cancer (CRC) survival was reported in observational studies, which are susceptible to unmeasured confounding and reverse causality. We used a Mendelian randomization approach to evaluate the association between genetically-predicted CRP concentrations and CRC-specific survival.We used individual-level data for 16,918 eligible CRC cases of European ancestry from 15 studies within the International Survival Analysis of Colorectal Cancer Consortium.
