To investigate the correlation between different expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 and the long-term survival of patients undergoing radical gastrectomy.
The expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 in cancer and adjacent tissues of gastric cancer patients were detected, and their relationship with clinical pathological parameters and long-term prognosis were analyzed.
Low expression of CDK5RAP3 was detected in 102 patients (78.5%), and UFM1 expression was low in 99 patients (76.2%), and the expression of the two was significantly positively correlated. Based on the co-expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1, we found that the low expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 was closely related to the depth of invasion (P = 0.041), lymph node metastasis (p = 0.006), and TNM stage (P = 0.000). In Kaplan-Meier analysis, the prognosis of patients with low expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 was significantly poorer than that of patients with high expression of CDK5RAP3 or UFM1 (p = 0.005), and could be used as an independent risk factor for the prognosis of the entire group of patients. The co-expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 had the largest area under the ROC curve, and the patients’ long-term prognosis was better than the TNM stage alone, and has statistical significance (p <0.05).
The expressions of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 are significantly reduced in gastric cancer tissues. The co-expression of CDK5RAP3 and UFM1 is an independent prognostic factor for gastric cancer. Combining the expression of the two can provide a more accurate prognostic model for predicting the overall survival of gastric cancer.
