Abstract

We examined the correlation between response to platinum-based chemotherapy and expression of glutathione S-transferase (GST), γ-GGT (both by immunohistochemistry) and γ-GCS (by in situ hybridization) in 51 patients with head and neck cancer, who received a total of 56 courses of chemotherapy. The overall response rate for the 56 chemotherapy treatment courses was 48%. The overall response rate (CR, PR) for patients with low GST scores was 88% (21 of 24), while among the patients with high GST scores, the overall response rate was 19% (6 of 32, P=0.001). Patients with a low GST score were 4.7 times more likely to respond to chemotherapy than patients with high GST scores. GST scores corresponded to response in 84% of cases. Among 33 patients treated with chemotherapy for relapsed disease, the overall response rate for patients with low GST score was 70% (7 of 10), while among the patients with high GST scores, the overall response rate was 8.7% (2 of 23, P
