To study the predictive value of the DNA methylation levels of JAM3, SOX1, SLIT2, C13ORF18, and TERT in the cervical intraepithelial neoplasia prognosis.
In the present study, 139 cases were collected and followed up for 24 months. The DNA methylation levels of JAM3, SOX1, SLIT2, C13ORF18, and TERT were tested from their exfoliated cells. One-way ANOVA, receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analyses were conducted to analyze the data.
The DNA methylation of the five genes was associated with prognosis of CIN. The levels of methylation increased as the progression of lesion for the prognosis. For CIN1, difference between DNA methylation of JAM3, SOX1, SLIT2, and C13ORF18 had significance statistically (P < 0.001). Sensitivity (95.2%) and specificity (93.1%) of JAM3 were the highest compared with other genes for the prognosis of CIN1. In addition, for CIN2/3, DNA methylation of JAM3, SOX1, SLIT2, TERT, and C13ORF18 had difference statistically (P < 0.001). JAM3 were also the highest in sensitivity (95.2%) and specificity (93.1%) compared with other genes for the prognosis of CIN2/3.
Our data suggest for the first time that DNA methylation levels are associated with prognosis of CIN significantly. DNA methylation levels of some genes, especially JAM3, may serve as markers for the prediction of the CIN prognosis, including CIN1 nature prognosis and CIN2/3 after treatment.
