Abstract

The prognostic significance of microRNA (miR)‑210 and the caspase 8‑associated protein 2 (CASP8AP2) gene in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has been validated and CASP8AP2 has been demonstrated as a target of miR‑210. In the present study, the reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT‑qPCR) was used to determine miR‑210 and CASP8AP2 expression in 91 children with ALL. Associations between gene expression levels and the prognostic value of combined detection of the two indicators were analyzed. Results from a receiver operating characteristic curve demonstrated that threshold values of miR‑210 and CASP8AP2 were 3.8243 and 0.4760, respectively. Although the expression of miR‑210 and CASP8AP2 were not associated at the mRNA level in pediatric ALL, combined detection of the two predicted ALL prognosis with an increased accuracy. Furthermore, an equation was devised including minimal residual disease at day 33 and expression of miR‑210 and CASP8AP2, which may enable bone marrow relapse to be predicted more precisely compared with the current risk stratification.
