Abstract

The present study aimed to explore the clinical significance of miR‑372 and miR‑495 in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Eighty‑one AML patients (research group) admitted to the First Hospital of Lanzhou University from March 2012 to January 2014 were selected, and 60 healthy persons (control group) were selected. The expression levels of miR‑372 and miR‑495 in the peripheral blood of the subjects were detected by reverse transcriptase quantitative PCR, and their diagnostic and prognostic values in AML were analyzed. The miR‑372 expression level in the peripheral blood of patients in the research group was significantly higher than that in the control group (P<0.05), and the miR‑495 level was significantly lower than that in the control group (P<0.05). The area under the curve (AUC), sensitivity, and specificity of miR‑372 combined with miR‑495 in the diagnosis of AML were 0.925, 86.43, and 93.33% respectively. The 5‑year survival rate of patients with high expression of miR‑372 was lower than that of those with low expression of miR‑372 (P<0.05), and the 5‑year survival rate of patients with high expression of miR‑495 was higher than that of those with low expression of miR‑495 (P<0.05). miR‑372 and miR‑495 were independent risk factors for the prognosis and survival of AML patients. miR‑372 expression increased in AML, while miR‑495 decreased. miR‑372 and miR‑495 are effective indicators for the early diagnosis and prognosis of AML.
