Polymorphisms in SLCO1B1 and UGT1A1 are associated with sorafenib-induced toxicity


Aim: Sorafenib-treated patients display a substantial variation in the incidence of toxicity. We aimed to investigate the association of genetic polymorphisms with observed toxicity on sorafenib. Patients & methods: We genotyped 114 patients that were treated with sorafenib at the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, the Netherlands, for SLCO1B1, SLCO1B3, ABCC2, ABCG2, UGT1A1 and UGT1A9. Results: The UGT1A1 (rs8175347) polymorphism was associated with hyperbilirubinemia and treatment interruption.
