Abstract

Expression and clinical significance of serum amyloid A (SAA) and interleukin‑6 (IL‑6) in patients with acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) were investigated. Fifty‑one patients with AECOPD (acute group, AG) and 51 patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (stable group, SG) admitted to Qingdao Eighth People's Hospital were selected. The expression levels of SAA and IL‑6 in peripheral blood of patients in the two groups were detected and compared before and after treatment. Pearson analysis was used in the correlation between SAA and IL‑6 and Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was employd to analyze the predictive value of SAA and IL‑6 for AECOPD progression. Logistic regression analysis was used to analyze the risk factors of AECOPD patients. The expression levels of SAA and IL‑6 of patients in AG were significantly higher than those in SG (P<0.05). Pearson analysis showed that SAA was positively correlated with IL‑6 expression (P<0.05). ROC curve analysis showed that AUC predicted by SAA and IL‑6 for AECOPD progress was 0.789 and 0.762 (P<0.05). Logistic regression analysis showed that SAA and IL‑6 were prediction indexes of AECOPD progression. The levels of SAA and IL‑6 were significantly increased during AECOPD and effectively predicted the progress of AECOPD and is a risk factor affecting AECOPD patients.
