Background: Epidemiological studies have suggested that variants on adiponectin (ADIPOQ) and its receptor ADIPOR1 (adiponectin receptor 1) are associated with colorectal cancer (CRC) risk; however, the results were inconclusive. The aim of the study was to evaluate the associations between the variants on ADIPOQ and ADIPOR1 and the CRC risk with a hospital-based case-control study in the Chinese population along with meta-analysis of available epidemiological studies. Methods: With a hospital-based case-control study of 341 cases and 727 controls, the associations between the common variants on ADIPOQ (rs266729, rs822395, rs2241766 and rs1501299) and ADIPOR1 (rs1342387 and rs12733285) and CRC susceptibility were evaluated. Meta-analysis of the published epidemiological studies was performed to investigate the associations between the variants and CRC risk. Results: For the population study, we found that variant rs1342387 of ADIPOR1 was associated with a reduced risk for CRC [adjusted odds ratio (OR) = 0.74, 95% confidential intervals (95% CI) = 0.57-0.97; CT/TT vs. CC]. The meta-analysis also suggested a significant association for rs1342387 and CRC risk; the pooled OR was 0.79 (95% CI = 0.66-0.95) for the CT/TT carriers compared to CC homozygotes under the random-effects model (Q = 8.06, df = 4, P = 0.089; I2 = 50.4%). The case-control study found no significant association for variants rs266729, rs822395, rs2241766, and rs1501299 on ADIPOQ or variant rs12733285 on ADIPOR1 and CRC susceptibility, which were consistent with results from the meta-analysis studies. Conclusions: These data suggested that variant rs1342387 on ADIPOR1 may be a novel CRC susceptibility factor. © Ou et al.

Adiponectin is a protein hormone secreted exclusively by adipocytes and it is responsible for insulin sensitization in the human body. Deregulation of adiponectin and its downstream signaling pathway genes have been found to be involved in the gastric cancer carcinogenesis; however, whether the variants on adiponectin (ADIPOQ) and adiponectin receptor 1 (ADIPOR1) affect the prognosis of gastric cancer patients are still unknown. Here we have recruited 455 gastric cancer patients, who have received the gastrectomy treatment to evaluate the prognostic effects of variants on ADIPOQ (rs266729 and rs822395) and AdipoR1 (rs12733285 and rs1342387) for the gastric cancer patients. No significant association between the four variants and the overall survival of the gastric cancer patients was found. However, for those patients without a previous history of alcohol drinking, the rs266729 GG/CG genotype carriers showed a significantly decreased gastric cancer mortality compared to homogeneity CC patients (HR 0.74, 95 % CI 0.56–0.97; p = 0.032) after adjustment for variants age, sex, smoking status, tumor stage, tumor location and post-surgery chemotherapy. No significant association between the variant rs266729 genotypes and overall survival for the gastric cancer patients with an alcohol drinking habit. These data suggested that the variant rs266729 was an independent prognostic factor for the never drinking gastric cancer patients who received surgical treatment. © 2014, Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht.
