In this study, we tested whether polymorphisms in human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G) were associated with event-free survival (EFS) in pediatric Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL). We evaluated the association of HLA-G 3'-UTR polymorphisms with EFS in 113 pediatric HL patients treated using the AIEOP LH-2004 protocol. Patients with the +3027-C/A genotype (rs17179101, UTR-7 haplotype) showed lower EFS than those with the +3027-C/C genotype (HR= 3.23, 95%CI: 0.99-10.54, P=0.012). Female patients and systemic B symptomatic patients with the HLA-G +3027 polymorphism showed lower EFS. Multivariate analysis showed that the +3027-A polymorphism (HR 3.17, 95%CI 1.16-8.66, P=0.025) was an independent prognostic factor. Immunohistochemical analysis showed that HL cells from patients with the +3027-C/A genotype did not express HLA-G. Moreover, HLA-G +3027 polymorphism improved EFS prediction when added to the algorithm for therapeutic group classification of pediatric HL patients. Our findings suggest HLA-G +3027 polymorphism is a prognostic marker in pediatric HL patients undergoing treatment according to LH-2004 protocol.
