Abstract

The aim of the present study was to examine the expression and clinical significance of long non‑coding RNA (lncRNA)‑CCDC26 in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and to investigate the potential functions of CCDC26. The Gene Expression Omnibus database and reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis were used to detect the expression levels of CCDC26 in patients with AML and healthy volunteers. Clinical data for 93 patients with AML were collected to analyze the clinical significance of CCDC26. Weighted gene co‑expression network analysis (WGCNA), a protein‑protein interaction (PPI) network, and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathway analysis were used to examine the functions of CCDC26. The expression levels of CCDC26 in the initially diagnosed and relapsed patients with AML were significantly upregulated compared with the control group. The upregulated expression level of CCDC26 in patients with AML was significantly associated with age, anemia, risk stratification and remission. Furthermore, patients with a high CCDC26 expression level had a poorer overall survival (P=0.0105). In addition, the area under the curve (AUC)1year and AUC2year of CCDC26 for overall survival were 0.722 and 0.686, respectively. WGCNA, PPI network and KEGG pathway analysis revealed that CCDC26 was involved in the regulation of a number of biological processes. lncRNA‑CCDC26 may serve as a novel biomarker for monitoring the progression and predicting the clinical outcome of AML.
