The present study analyzed Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D)-related gene polymorphisms and their impacts on chemotherapeutic response and survival in patients with metastatic gastric cancer (MGC).This retrospective study enrolled 108 MGC patients treated with first-line EOF chemotherapy (epirubicin, oxaliplatin and 5-fluorouracil combination chemotherapy). Eleven single nucleotide polymorphisms of five T2D-related genes were determined.Among the 11 single nucleotide polymorphisms, three (IGF2BP2 rs4402960, IGF2BP2 rs6769511 and KCNQ1 rs163182) were significantly associated with disease control rate and two (GCKR rs780093 and rs780094) were significantly associated with progression-free and overall survival.Our results suggest IGF2BP2 and KCNQ1 polymorphisms might be independent predictors of chemotherapeutic response, while GCKR polymorphisms might be independent predictors of survival in MGC patients treated with first-line EOF chemotherapy.
