In the literature, studies on the oxidant effects of nontransferrin bound iron [NTBI (eLPI assay)] during chemotherapy of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute myeloblastic leukemia are lacking. We established NTBI and oxidative stress determinants (OSD), iron parameters, high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels, liver tests, cumulative chemotherapeutic doses, and transfused blood in 36 children with acute leukemia throughout chemotherapy. These parameters were determined at the beginning and end of chemotherapy blocks (11 time points) and in 20 healthy children using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and colorimetric and fluorometric enzymatic methods. In acute lymphoblastic leukemia, NTBI, OSD, and hs-CRP were higher than controls at 4/11, 7/11, and 9/11 time points (P<0.05). At 3 time points, NTBI and OSD concurrently increased. Ferritin, soluble transferrin receptor, serum iron, and transferrin saturation were higher than in controls at 5 to 11/11 time points (P<0.05). Those with NTBI had higher iron parameters than those without NTBI (P<0.05), but showed similar OSD, hs-CRP, liver enzymes, cumulative chemotherapeutics, and transfused blood (P>0.05). OSD did not correlate with NTBI, but correlated with hs-CRP. In conclusion, NTBI is a poor predictor of OSD in acute leukemia possibly because of the heterogeneity of NTBI and chronic inflammation. Further studies are needed to delineate the pathophysiology of these diseases. © 2017 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.

Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone malignancy of adolescents and young adults. To better understand the genetic etiology of osteosarcoma, we performed a multistage genome-wide association study consisting of 941 individuals with osteosarcoma (cases) and 3,291 cancer-free adult controls of European ancestry. Two loci achieved genome-wide significance: a locus in the GRM4 gene at 6p21.3 (encoding glutamate receptor metabotropic 4; rs1906953; P = 8.1 × 10 -9) and a locus in the gene desert at 2p25.2 (rs7591996 and rs10208273; P = 1.0 × 10 -8 and 2.9 × 10 -7, respectively). These two loci warrant further exploration to uncover the biological mechanisms underlying susceptibility to osteosarcoma. © 2013 Nature America, Inc. All rights reserved.

Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have mapped risk alleles for at least 10 distinct cancers to a small region of 63 000 bp on chromosome 5p15.33. This region harbors the TERT and CLPTM1L genes; the former encodes the catalytic subunit of telomerase reverse transcriptase and the latter may play a role in apoptosis. To investigate further the genetic architecture of common susceptibility alleles in this region, we conducted an agnostic subset-based meta-analysis (association analysis based on subsets) across six distinct cancers in 34 248 cases and 45 036 controls. Based on sequential conditional analysis, we identified as many as six independent risk loci marked by common single-nucleotide polymorphisms: five in the TERT gene (Region 1: rs7726159, P = 2.10 10(-39); Region 3: rs2853677, P = 3.30 10(-36) and PConditional = 2.36 10(-8); Region 4: rs2736098, P = 3.87 10(-12) and PConditional = 5.19 10(-6), Region 5: rs13172201, P = 0.041 and PConditional = 2.04 10(-6); and Region 6: rs10069690, P = 7.49 10(-15) and PConditional = 5.35 10(-7)) and one in the neighboring CLPTM1L gene (Region 2: rs451360; P = 1.90 10(-18) and PConditional = 7.06 10(-16)). Between three and five cancers mapped to each independent locus with both risk-enhancing and protective effects. Allele-specific effects on DNA methylation were seen for a subset of risk loci, indicating that methylation and subsequent effects on gene expression may contribute to the biology of risk variants on 5p15.33. Our results provide strong support for extensive pleiotropy across this region of 5p15.33, to an extent not previously observed in other cancer susceptibility loci.
