HER-2 status was determined in pretreatment biopsies by immunohistochemistry (IHC) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). HER-2 positivity before nCRT were significantly associated with poor 5-year disease-free survival (P = 0.015) and 5-year overall survival (P = 0.026). HER-2 status can not predict tumor response to nCRT in LARC, but it provides us with a trend that HER-2 positive tumor may be resistant to nCRT.
