AKR1B10, first cloned from liver cancer tissues, has recently been reported to be up-regulated significantly in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) tissues, but the relationship between serum level of AKR1B10 and the risk of HCC is not understood.


170 HCC patients and 120 health donors from October 2014 to March 2017 were recruited in the affiliated hospital of Guilin Medical University. Serum AKR1B10 in all cases were detected and in 30 HCC patients were analyzed preoperatively and postoperatively by Time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay.


The level of serum AKR1B10 was significantly higher in HCC patients (1800.24±2793.79) than in health donors (129.34±194.129), and downregulation of serum AKR1B10 in HCC patients was observed after hepatectomy. When samples were grouped according to the serum level of AKR1B10 (≥232.7pg/ml), serum AKR1B10 positively correlated to serum AFP (χ2=6.295, P=0.012), ALT (χ2=18.803, P=0.000), AST (χ2=33.421, P=0.000), tumor nodule number (χ2=6.777, P=0.009), cirrhosis (χ2=43.458, P=0.000), and tumor size (χ2=6.042, P=0.014) in the Chi-square test.


Diagnosis of HCC could be improved using the both predictors of serum AKR1B10 and AFP. AKR1B10 was thus considered to be a new serological biomarker for HCC.

Hepatocellular carcinoma
Serum marker

Recientemente se ha notificado que el AKR1B10, clonado por primera vez a partir de tejidos hepáticos cancerosos, se encuentra aumentado de forma significativa en tejidos afectados por carcinoma hepatocelular (CHC), aunque no se comprende la relación entre la concentración sérica de AKR1B10 y el riesgo de CHC.


Se incluyeron 170 pacientes con CHC y 120 donantes sanos desde octubre de 2014 a marzo de 2017 en el hospital afiliado a la Guilin Medical University. Se analizó el AKR1B10 en todos los casos y en 30 pacientes con CHC antes y después de la cirugía, mediante fluoroinmunoensayo a tiempo resuelto.


La concentración sérica de AKR1B10 fue significativamente mayor en los pacientes con CHC (1.800,24±2.793,79) que en los donantes sanos (129,34±194,129), y se observó una reducción del AKR1B10 sérico en los pacientes con CHC tras la hepatectomía. Cuando se agruparon las muestras en función de la concentración sérica de AKR1B10 (≥ 232,7pg/ml), el AKR1B10 sérico se correlacionó positivamente con la AFP sérica (χ2=6,295; p=0,012), la ALT (χ2=18,803; p=0,000), la AST (χ2=33,421; p=0,000), la cifra de nódulos tumorales (χ2=6,777; p=0,009), la presencia de cirrosis (χ2=43,458; p=0,000) y el tamaño tumoral (χ2=6,042; p=0,014) en la prueba de χ2.


Podría mejorarse el diagnóstico del CHC usando los 2 factores pronósticos de AKR1B10 sérico y AFP. Por lo tanto, el AKR1B10 se consideró un nuevo biomarcador serológico del CHC.
