This study was performed to investigate if the microRNA-related single-nucleotide polymorphisms (miR-SNPs) of XPO5 gene predicted the prognosis and pathological features of advanced non-small-cell lung cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. A total of 131 advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients were recruited. MicroRNA (miRNA) binding site prediction software was adopted for the prediction and screening of SNPs in XPO5 and miRNA binding regions. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification was further performed. Time-dependent survival-free curves were constructed using the Kaplan–Meier technique. Univariate and the multivariate survival analyses were conducted for confirmation of prognostic factor for advanced NSCLC patients receiving chemotherapy. There were no significant differences of SNP distribution frequencies between groups, without statistical significance (P > 0.05). Included clinical pathological features and chemotherapy regimens showed no apparent statistical significance in influencing the curative effect of chemotherapy in advanced NSCLC patients (all P > 0.05). While the objective response rate (ORR) in patients who carried AA and AC genotype was 35.48 and 51.22 %, respectively, with statistically significant difference (P < 0.05). Univariate survival analysis indicated that patients who carried AA genotype showed a significantly lower 5-year survival rate to those who carried AC genotype (P < 0.05). And, considering pathological features, statistical significance was found in patients with different pathological types, lymph node metastasis, differentiation degree, T staging, and pathological staging (all P < 0.05). Multivariate analysis results indicated that the SNP sites of rs11077 might be an independent prognostic factor of advanced NSCLC patients receiving chemotherapy (risk ratio [RR] = 0.346; 95 % confidence interval [95 % CI] = 0.174–0.685, P = 0.002). Other clinical features were all considered to have no apparent effect in influencing the prognostic outcomes of advanced NSCLC patients receiving chemotherapy except lymph node metastasis (P < 0.05). miR-SNP rs11077 of XPO5 may be independently connected with the prognosis and chemotherapy response of advanced NSCLC patients, and patients with AC genotype have relatively improved prognostic outcomes and better curative effect of chemotherapy than those with AA allele of XPO5. Further, lymph node metastasis may be also involved in influencing the prognosis of advanced NSCLC patients.
