MECOM: a bioinformatics and experimentally identified marker for the diagnosis and prognosis of lung adenocarcinoma.

Objective: We aimed to explore the clinical value of MDS1 and EVI1 complex locus ( MECOM ) in lung adenocarcinoma (LUAD). Methods: Bioinformatics and experimental validation confirmed MECOM expression levels in LUAD. The value of MECOM was analyzed by receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve and Cox regression analysis. Results: Serum MECOM levels were lower in LUAD and correlated with gender, TNM stage, tumor size, lymph node metastasis and distant metastasis. The ROC curve showed that the area under the curve of MECOM was 0.804 for LUAD and, of note, could reach 0.889 for advanced LUAD; specificity was up to 90%. Conclusion: MECOM may contribute to independently identifying LUAD patients, particularly in advanced stages.
