Expression of BCL2, TP53, FOXA1, and GATA3 in pTa bladder cancer recurrence.

OBJECTIVES: In this study, we analyzed pTa bladder cancer (BC) for molecular markers BCL2, TP53, FOXA1, and GATA3 in relation to cancer recurrence.

METHODS: We analyzed samples of 79 patients with the pTa stage of BC using a real-time polymerase chain reaction (real-time PCR) between September 2018 and September 2020. The expression levels of BCL2, TP53, FOXA1, and GATA3 were compared with homologous non-tumor bladder tissue.

RESULTS: Expression of FOXA1, GATA3, and TP53 was significantly higher (p<0.01) in NMIBC samples compared to homologous non-tumor tissue. The expression of TP53 and FOXA1 in pTa was significantly lower (p<0.01) in the high-grade (HG) tumor when compared to the low-grade (LG) tumor. In contrast, the relative quantification (RQ) of GATA3 was significantly higher (p<0.01) in HG pTa. Patients with recurrence (pTa=33) had significantly higher expression of TP53, and GATA3 (p<0.01), and the gene of FOXA1 (p<0.01) had a significantly lower expression when compared to pTa tumors without recurrence. The expression of Bcl-2 was not statistically significant.

CONCLUSION: Our results, indicate, that comparing expression levels of these genes in cancer and cancer-free tissue could provide valuable data, as patients with pTa BC recurrence within up to 54 months of follow-up had a significantly higher RQ of TP53, GATA3, and FOXA1 when compared to pTa BC patients without recurrence (Tab. 2, Fig. 8, Ref. 54).
