Abstract BACKGROUND: Methylated Septin 9 (SEPT9) is a sensitive biomarker for colorectal cancer (CRC) from peripheral blood. However, its relationship to cancer localization, guaiac-based fecal occult blood test (gFOBT) and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) have not been described. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Plasma samples were collected for SEPT9 analysis from patients with no evidence of disease (NED) (n=92) before colonoscopy and CRC (n=92) before surgical treatment. DNA was isolated and bisulfite-converted using Epi proColon kit 2.0. Qualitative determination was performed using Epi proColon 2.0 RT-PCR assay. Samples for gFOBT and CEA analysis were collected from NED (n=17 and 27, respectively) and CRC (n=22 and 27, respectively). SEPT9 test was positive in 15.2\% (14/92) of NED and 95.6\% (88/92) of CRC, including 100\% (67/67) from stage II to stage IV CRC and 84\% (21/25) of stage I CRC when a sample was called positive if 1 out of 3 PCR replicates was positive. In a second analysis (2 out of 3 PCR replicates) specificity improved to 99\% (91/92) of NEDs, at a sensitivity of 79.3\% (73/92) of SEPT9 positives in CRC. gFOBT was positive in 29.4\% (5/17) of NED and 68.2\% (15/22) of CRC and elevated CEA levels were detected in 14.8\% (4/27) of NED and 51.8\% (14/27) of CRC. Both SEPT9 (84.8\%) and CEA (85.2\%) showed higher specificity than gFOBT (70.6\%). SEPT9 was positive in 96.4\% (54/56) of left-sided colon cancer (LSCC) cases and 94.4\% (34/36) of right-sided colon cancer (RSCC) cases. gFOBT was positive in 83.3\% (10/12) of cases with LSCC and 50\% (5/10) of cases with RSCC, elevated CEA was detected 60\% (9/15) of LSCC and 41.7\% (5/12) of RSCC. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: The high degree of sensitivity and specificity of SEPT9 in plasma makes it a better method to detect CRC than gFOBT and CEA, even for the more difficult to detect RSCC.
