Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a highly heterogeneous hematological malignancy. The bone marrow (BM) microenvironment in AML plays an important role in leukemogenesis, drug resistance and leukemia relapse. In this study, we aimed to identify reliable immune-related biomarkers for AML prognosis by multiomics analysis. We obtained expression profiles from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) database and constructed a LASSO-Cox regression model to predict the prognosis of AML using multiomics bioinformatic analysis data. This was followed by independent validation of the model in the GSE106291 (n=251), GSE12417 (n=163) and GSE37642 (n=137) datasets and mutated genes in clinical samples for predicting overall survival (OS). Molecular docking was performed to predict the most optimal ligands to these hub genes. The single-cell RNA sequence dataset GSE116256 was used to clarify the expression of the hub genes in different immune cell types. According to their significant differences in immune gene signatures and survival trends, we concluded that the immune infiltration-lacking subtype (IL type) is associated with better prognosis than the immune infiltration-rich subtype (IR type). Using the LASSO model, we built a classifier based on 5...Continue Reading

Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disease with approximately 20,000 cases per year in the United States. AML also accounts for 15-20% of all childhood acute leukemias, while it is responsible for more than half of the leukemic deaths in these patients. Here is the latest research on this disease.
