Association between interleukin 8 −251 A/T and +781 C/T polymorphisms and osteosarcoma risk in Chinese population: a case–control study

Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is an angiogenic chemokine that plays a potent role in both development and progression of many human malignancies. However, there are no data about the role of IL-8 polymorphism in development of osteosarcoma. A hospital-based case–control study was conducted among 190 patients with osteosarcoma and 190 healthy controls to investigate the possible association between the IL-8 −251 A/T and +781 C/T polymorphisms, respectively, and the risk of osteosarcoma. Significant differences of genotype distribution were observed between osteosarcoma cases and controls at the IL-8 −251T/A genotypes. Compared with the IL-8 −251T/A homozygote TT, the heterozygous TA genotype was associated with significantly increased risk for osteosarcoma (odds ratio (OR) = 2.16, 95 % confidence interval (CI) = (1.38–4.52), P = 0.021); the AA genotype was associated with increased risk for osteosarcoma (OR = 1.94, 95 % CI = 1.31–3.83, P = 0.018). TA and AA combined variants were associated with increased risk for osteosarcoma compared with the TT genotype (OR = 1.72, 95 % CI = 1.45–4.41, P = 0.023). Moreover, the genotype AA of IL-8 −251T/A carried a higher risk of osteosarcoma metastasis and later Enneking stages, compared with the TT genotype. However, the genotype and allele frequencies of IL-8 +781 C/T polymorphisms in osteosarcoma patients were not significantly different from controls. Our results showed that the IL-8 −251 A/T genotype was associated with increased risk for development and metastasis of osteosarcoma in Chinese Han population.
