Diagnostic predictability of serum miR-4793-3p and miR-1180-3p expression in community-acquired pneumonia.

Background: Early identification of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) is crucial to prevent severe progression. Methods: The authors enrolled 150 hospitalized CAP patients and collected clinicopathologic features and blood indicators. Plasma miRNA profiling was conducted using microarray detection, and selected miRNAs were tested with reverse transcription quantitative PCR. Predictive models were built using least shrinkage and selection operator regression. Results: Least shrinkage and selection operator regression identified two miRNAs (miR-4793-3p and miR-1180-3p) that distinguished mild from severe CAP patients (area under the curve = 0.948). The miRNA model outperformed D-dimer, platelet and procalcitonin (max area under the curve = 0.729). Conclusion: Increased levels of miR-4793-3p and miR-1180-3p may indicate severe pneumonia development. Plasma miRNA profiling enables early prediction of severe CAP, aiding therapeutic decisions.
