Abstract

MultiMorbidity (MM), defined as the co-occurrence of two or more chronic conditions, is associated with poorer health outcomes, such as recurrent hospital readmission and mortality. As a group of conditions, cardiovascular disease (CVD) exemplifies several challenges of MM, and the identification of prognostic minimally invasive biomarkers to stratify mortality risk in patients affected by cardiovascular MM is a huge challenge. Circulating miRNAs associated to inflammaging and endothelial dysfunction, such as miR-17, miR-21-5p, and miR-126-3p, are expected to have prognostic relevance. We analyzed a composite profile of circulating biomarkers, including miR-17, miR-21-5p, and miR-126-3p, and routine laboratory biomarkers in a sample of 246 hospitalized geriatric patients selected for cardiovascular MM from the Report-AGE INRCA database and BioGER INRCA biobank, to evaluate the association with all-cause mortality during 31 days and 12 and 24 months follow-up. Circulating levels of miR-17, miR-126-3p, and some blood parameters, including neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and eGFR, were significantly associated with mortality in these patients. Overall, our results suggest that in a cohort of geriatric hospitalized patients affected by cardiovascular MM, lower circulating miR-17 and miR-126-3p levels could contribute to identify patients at higher risk of short- and medium-term mortality.
