Current risk assessment tools to estimate the risk of nonsentinel lymph node metastases after completion lymphadenectomy for a positive sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in cutaneous melanoma are based on clinical and pathologic factors. We identified a novel genetic signature that can predict non-SLN metastases in patients with cutaneous melanoma staged with a SLN biopsy. RNA was collected for tumor-positive SLNs in patients staged by SLN biopsy for cutaneous melanoma. All patients with a tumor-positive SLN biopsy underwent completion lymphadenectomy. A 1:10 case:control series of positive and negative non-SLN patients was analyzed by microarray and quantitative RT-PCR. Candidate differentially expressed genes were validated in a 1:3 case:control separate cohort of positive and negative non-SLN patients. The 1:10 case:control discovery set consisted of 7 positive non-SLN cases matched to 70 negative non-SLN controls. The cases and controls were similar with regards to important clinicopathologic factors, such as gender, primary tumor site, age, ulceration, and thickness. Microarray and RT-PCR identified six potential differentially expressed genes for validation. In the 40-patient separate validation set, 10 positive non-SLN patients were matched to 30 negative non-SLN controls based on gender, ulceration, age, and thickness. Five of the six genes were differentially expressed. The five gene panel identified patients at low (7.1%) and high risk (66.7%) for non-SLN metastases. A novel, non-SLN gene score based on differential expressed genes in a tumor-positive SLN can identify patients at high and low risk for non-SLN metastases.
