One of the trends in microarray data analysis is to utilize multiple datasets. In this research, one mouse microarray dataset and two human microarray datasets were employed. We used a gene expression profile derived from invasive murine colon cancer cells that were highly metastatic in an immunocompetent mouse model to identify colon cancer patients at risk for recurrence in an exploratory biomarker study. Data from 55 Vanderbilt Medical Center (VMC) colorectal cancer patients were used as the training dataset, and data from 177 Moffitt Cancer Center patients were used as the independent dataset. The metastasis-associated gene expression profile developed from the mouse model was refined using comparative functional genomics in the VMC gene expression profiles to identify a 34-gene classifier associated with high risk of metastasis and death from colon cancer. A recurrence score derived from the biologically based classifier was tested in the Moffitt dataset.
