Identifying biomarkers to indicate disease severity and predict the occurrence of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) would benefit the clinical prognosis of ACS. This study estimated the expression and significance of lncRNA TPRG1-AS1 in the onset and development of ACS, aiming to explore a novel biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of ACS.Patients and Methods: A total of 109 ACS patients and 66 patients who received coronary angiography and excluded ACS were enrolled in this study. TPRG1-AS1 in the serum of study subjects was analyzed by PCR. The significance of TPRG1-AS1 in screening ACS was evaluated by ROC analysis. The association of TPRG1-AS1 with the disease severity of ACS was assessed by Pearson correlation analysis with patients’ clinicopathological features. The potential of TPRG1-AS1 in predicting the occurrence of MACE was assessed by logistic regression analysis.Results: Significant upregulation of TPRG1-AS1 was observed in ACS patients, which served as a risk factor for ACS and distinguish between ACS patients and the normal group. TPRG1-AS1 was positively correlated with Gensini score, cys-C, cTnI, and NT-proBNP levels of ACS patients, which indicate severe development of ACS. Additionally, increasing serum TPRG1-AS1 was associated with the high incidence of MACE during patients’ hospitalization and was identified as a risk factor for MACE in ACS patients.Conclusion: Upregulated TPRG1-AS1 in ACS served as a diagnostic biomarker and predicted the severe development of patients.Keywords: cardiovascular disease, lncRNA, onset, inpatient MACE, severity
