Prognostic value of melanoma cell adhesion molecule expression in cancers: a meta-analysis

Prognostic value of melanoma cell adhesion molecule expression in cancers: a meta-analysis

International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Medicine 8(8): 12056-12063

Melanoma cell adhesion molecule (MACM) has been reported in many studies as a novel bio-marker for its prognosis value in cancers. But the prognosis significance of MACM expression in cancer remains inconclusive. Therefore, we conducted a system review and meta-analysis to assess its prognosis value in cancers. A systematic search through Pubmed, EMBASE and Cochran Library database was conducted. Hazard Ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to evaluate the prognosis value of MACM expression. Eleven studies with 2657 cases were included after sorting out 462 articles for this meta-analysis. The results of the fixed-model depending on the heterogeneity in studies demonstrated that MACM expression was significantly associated with overall survival (OS) in cancer (HR=2.84, 95% CI: 1.10-7.31, P<0.00001). Furthermore, subgroup analysis indicated that high expressed MACM predicted a poor OS in both Asian (HR=2.52, 95% CI: 1.80-3.52, P<0.00001) and Caucasian (HR=2.40, 95% CI: 2.01-2.88, P<0.00001). In conclusion, high expression of MACM was significantly associated with a poor prognostic outcome in cancer. MACM can be regarded as a novel bio-marker in different types of cancers and can be used to evaluate the prognosis of therapeutic effect during clinical practices.
