Down-regulation Of Hsa_circ_0092125 Is Related To The Occurrence And Development Of Oral Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
Published 2019 · Medicine
Circular RNA plays an important role in regulating tumour development and progression and can serve as a biomarker for cancer. This study was performed to investigate the clinical significance of hsa_circ_0092125 expression in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). The expression of hsa_circ_0092125 in OSCC tissues and cell lines was determined by reverse transcription-quantitative PCR analysis. The association between hsa_circ_0092125 expression and clinicopathological data was determined by χ2 test. Overall survival (OS) curves were created using Kaplan-Meier survival analysis, and the differences were examined by log-rank test. Moreover, univariate and multivariate Cox analysis were employed to evaluate the risk factors of the OSCC prognosis. The expression of hsa_circ_0092125 was significantly down-regulated in OSCC tissues and cell lines. A low expression of hsa_circ_0092125 was associated with clinicopathological factors in OSCC patients, including tumour size, TNM stage, and lymph node metastasis. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis indicated that the OS time was shorter in OSCC patients with a lower hsa_circ_0092125 expression level than in those with a higher expression level. In addition, univariate and multivariate Cox analysis identified lower hsa_circ_0092125 expression, tumour size, TNM stage, and lymph node metastasis as independent risk factors for the OSCC prognosis. Thus, down-regulated expression of hsa_circ_0092125 might serve as a biomarker of the OSCC prognosis.
