To the authors' knowledge, this is the first prospective study in patients with advanced nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to describe predictive germline polymorphisms not only for platinum-gemcitabine clinical activity (excision repair cross-complementation group 1 [ERCC1] and xeroderma pigmentosum group A member 10 [XPD10]), but also for toxicity (glutathione S-transferase π 1 [GSTP1], adenosine triphosphate-dependent DNA helicase Q1 [RECQ1], and cytidine deaminase [CDA]). The results indicate that nonplatinum-containing chemotherapy for carriers of the ERCC1 T allele or the XPD10 G allele should be studied prospectively.
