Abstract

BACKGROUND: Polymorphism of the genes of Human Epidermal growth factor receptor1 HER1 and receptor2 HER2 have been reported to be linked to pathogenesis of several malignant tumors but still there is contradiction regarding their association with breast cancer.

OBJECTIVE: In this case control study we aimed to analyze the frequency of HER1 R497K rs 11543848 and HER2 I655V rs 1136201 Polymorphisms in breast cancer.

SUBJECT AND METHOD: The frequency of HER1 ArgR 497Lys K and HER2 Ile I 655Val V polymorphisms were tested in 64 breast cancer patients and 86 normal control by polymerase chain reaction followed by restriction fragment polymorphism detection. Immunohistochemical analysis was done for HER2 protein on the available 18 malignant tissue samples.

RESULTS: HER1 497K and HER2 655V variant had significantly increased breast cancer risk OR=2.6, 95% CI 1.6–4.2, OR=2.2, 95% CI 1.2–4.1, p< 0.05 respectively. Moreover, combined HER1 K497 and HER2 V655 variant was detected in 26.6% malignant in comparison to 8.14% of control group OR=4.1, 95% CI 1.58–10.57, but, no significant association was noticed between both Polymorphisms and clinicopathological features of the disease. As regard HER2 immunohistochemical expression no significant correlation was revealed with HER2 655V polymorphism.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that HER1 497K and HER2 655V polymorphisms are potential risk factor for development of breast cancer.
