Abstract [en]

Objective. To evaluate the relationship between osteopontin (OPN) in serum and plasma and parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP) in serum, plasma and tumour tissue, and to assess the prognostic impact of OPN and PTHrP in human renal cell carcinoma (RCC).

Material and methods. The study included 269 patients with RCC. In 189 patients, immunohistochemical (IHC) PTHrP tumour tissue expression was evaluated, and OPN and PTHrP in serum were assessed. In 80 patients, plasma OPN and PTHrP were analysed. Tumour type, TNM stage, nuclear grade and RCC-specific survival were also registered. In a sub-group, IHC expression of CD 31 was assessed. The prognostic information of the factors was analysed using uni- and multivariate analyses.

Results. The median OPN level was 2.3 times higher in plasma than in serum. Serum OPN was significantly higher in patients with papillary RCC compared to clear cell RCC and chromophobe RCC. Both serum and plasma OPN levels were positively correlated to TNM stage and nuclear grade. Multivariate analysis showed that serum and plasma OPN levels were independent prognostic factors for RCC-specific survival, along with TNM stage. Immunohistochemical expression of PTHrP associated to TNM stage but not to nuclear grade or serum OPN. Furthermore, IHC expression of PTHrP was positively correlated to serum PTHrP but inversely to tumour CD31 expression. Plasma PTHrP was increased in 20% of the patients and related to TNM stage but not to nuclear grade. Plasma OPN was significantly higher in patients with increased PTHrP levels, compared to those with normal levels.

Conclusion. Plasma OPN levels differed between RCC types, and in clear cell RCC, both serum and plasma OPN levels were independent predictors of survival. We found no evidence for prognostic value related to circulating levels or the IHC expression of PTHrP.
