Introduction: Dysregulated genes play a critical role in the development and progression of cancer, suggesting their potential as novel independent biomarkers for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. Prognostic model-based gene expression profiles are not widely utilized clinically. We investigated the prognostic significance of an expression profile-based gene signature for outcome prediction in patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). Methods: The gene expression profiles of a large cohort of patients with MPM were obtained and analyzed by repurposing publicly available microarray data. A gene-based risk score model was developed with the training dataset and then validated with the TCGA-MESO (mesothelioma) dataset. The time-dependent receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was used to evaluate the prognostic performance of survival prediction. The biological function of the prognostic genes was predicted using bioinformatics analysis. Results: Three genes in the training dataset (GSE2549) were identified as significantly associated with the overall survival (OS) of patients with MPM and were combined to develop a three-gene prognostic signature to stratify patients into low-risk and high-risk groups. The MPM patients of the training dataset in the low-risk group exhibited longer OS than those in the high-risk group (HR = 0.25, 95% CI = 0.11 to 0.56, P < 0.001). Similar prognostic values for the three-gene signature were observed in the validated TCGA-MESO cohort (HR = 0.53 95% CI = 0.33 to 0.85, P = 0.008). ROC analysis also demonstrated the good performance in predicting 3-year OS in the GEO and TCGA cohorts (KM-AUC for GEO = 0.989, KM-AUC for TCGA = 0.618). The C-statistic for the 3-gene model was 0.761. Validation with TCGA-MESO confirmed the model鈥檚 ability to discriminate between risk groups in an alternative data set with fair performance (C-statistic: 0.68). Functional enrichment analysis suggested that these three genes may be involved in genetic and epigenetic events with known links to MPM. Conclusions: This study has identified and validated a novel 3-gene model to reliably discriminate patients at high and low risk of death in unselected populations of patients with MPM. Further larger, prospective multi-institutional cohort studies are necessary to validate this model.

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is associated with an聽extremely poor prognosis, and most patients initially are or聽rapidly become unresponsive to platinum-based chemotherapy. MicroRNA-31 (miR-31) is encoded on a genomic fragile site, 9p21.3, which is reportedly lost in many MPM tumors. Based on previous findings in a variety of other cancers, we hypothesized that miR-31 alters chemosensitivity and that miR-31 reconstitution may influence sensitivity to chemotherapeutics in MPM.

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive human cancer and miRNAs can play a key聽role for this disease. In order to broaden the knowledge in this field, the miRNA expression was investigated in a large series of MPM to discover new pathways helpful in diagnosis, prognosis and therapy. We employed nanoString nCounter system for miRNA profiling on 105 MPM samples and 10 healthy pleura. The analysis was followed by the validation of the most significantly deregulated miRNAs by RT-qPCR i...

Abstract Introduction Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a highly aggressive disease with limited therapeutic options. Histological subtype remains among the most reliable prognostic factors, because the epithelioid subtype associated with the best prognosis and the sarcomatoid subtype with the worst. The biphasic subtype has an intermediate prognosis, but its definitive histological diagnosis may be challenging owing to the difficulty of assessing the neoplastic nature of the stromal compo...

Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma (MPM) is an aggressive disease characterized by a dismal prognosis, mainly due to late diagnosis. To date, there are very few treatment options available and the refractoriness to the majority of therapeutic strategies, leading to consider MPM a relevant problem in public health. Therefore, the identification of novel prognostic markers and alternative therapeutic strategies remain a top priority. Several efforts have been made in this direction and to date a numbe...

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a highly aggressive cancer with short survival time. Unbalanced competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) have been shown to participate in the tumor pathogenesis and served as biomarkers for the clinical prognosis. However, the comprehensive analyses of the ceRNA network in the prognosis of MPM is still rarely reported. In this study, we obtained the transcriptome data of the MPM and the normal samples from TCGA, EGA, and GEO databases and identified the differe...

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is a fatal tumor lacking effective therapies. The characterization of overexpressed genes could constitute a strategy for identifying drivers of tumor progression as targets for novel therapies. Thus, we performed an integrated gene-expression analysis on RNAseq data of 85 MPM patients from TCGA dataset and reference samples from the GEO. The gene list was further refined by using published studies, a functional enrichment analysis, and the correlation betwee...

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an asbestos-related neoplasm that can only be treated successfully when correctly diagnosed and treated early. The asbestos-exposed population is a high-risk group that could benefit from sensitive and specific blood- or tissue-based biomarkers. We review recent work with biomarker development in MPM and literature of the last 20 years on the most promising blood- and tissue-based biomarkers. Proteomic, genomic, and epigenomic platforms are covered. SMRP i...

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), predominantly caused by asbestos exposure, is a highly aggressive cancer with poor prognosis. The staging systems currently used in clinics is inadequate in evaluating the prognosis of MPM. In this study, a five-gene signature was developed and enrolled into a prognostic risk score model by LASSO Cox regression analysis based on two expression profiling datasets (GSE2549 and GSE51024) from Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO). The five-gene signature was further va...

Abstract Multiple myeloma is the second largest malignant tumor of the blood system. Proteasome inhibitors (PIs) currently are effective drugs for some myeloma patients, but their prognosis varies. We extracted the transcriptome expression data and clinical information of myeloma patients from MMRF CoMMpass database, and used the Random Survival Forest Variable Hunting (RSF-VH) algorithm to select 6 highly prognosis-related genes and to develop a 6-genes scoring model, by which the risk score pr...

Background and aim: Lung squamous cell carcinoma (LUSC), is a pathological subtype of lung cancer, accounting for 30% of the lung cancers. A reliable model was constructed, based on the whole gene expression profiles, to predict the prognosis of patients with LUSC. Methods: The RNA-Seq data of LUSC was downloaded from the TCGA database, and differentially expressed genes (p 1) were screened out. By univariate and multivariate Cox regression analysis, we identified seven prognosis-related genes. ...
