DNA methylation-based biomarkers were suggested to be promising for early cancer diagnosis. However, DNA methylation-based biomarkers for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC), especially in Chinese Han populations have not been identified and evaluated quantitatively. Candidate tumor suppressor genes (N = 65) were selected through literature searching and four public high-throughput DNA methylation microarray datasets including 136 samples totally were collected for initial confirmation. Targeted bisulfite sequencing was applied in an independent cohort of 94 pairs of ESCC and normal tissues from a Chinese Han population for eventual validation. We applied nine different classification algorithms for the prediction to evaluate to the prediction performance. ADHFE1, EOMES, SALL1 and TFPI2 were identified and validated in the ESCC samples from a Chinese Han population. All four candidate regions were validated to be significantly hyper-methylated in ESCC samples through Wilcoxon rank-sum test (ADHFE1, P = 1.7 × 10-3; EOMES, P = 2.9 × 10-9; SALL1, P = 3.9 × 10-7; TFPI2, p = 3.4 × 10-6). Logistic regression based prediction model shown a moderately ESCC classification performance (Sensitivity = 66%, Specificity = 87%, AUC = 0.81). Moreover, advanced classification method had better performances (random forest and naive Bayes). Interestingly, the diagnostic performance could be improved in non-alcohol use subgroup (AUC = 0.84). In conclusion, our data demonstrate the methylation panel of ADHFE1, EOMES, SALL1 and TFPI2 could be an effective methylation-based diagnostic assay for ESCC.
