DNMT3A mutation is known as a recurrent event in acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patients. However, association between DNMT3A genetic polymorphisms and AML patients’ outcomes is unknown. DNMT3A 11 SNPs (rs11695471, rs2289195, rs734693, rs2276598, rs1465825, rs7590760, rs13401241, rs7581217, rs749131, rs41284843 and rs7560488) were genotyped in 344 diagnostic non-FAB-M3 AML patients from southern China. Patients underwent combined chemotherapy with cytarabine and anthracyclines. DNMT3A mRNA expression was analyzed in PBMCs from randomly selected AML patients. Multivariate analysis and combined genotype analysis showed that rs2276598 was associated with increased while rs11695471 and rs734693 were associated with decreased chemosensitivity (P<0.05), while rs11695471 (worse for OS), rs2289195 (favorable for OS and DFS) and rs2276598 (favorable for DFS) were significantly associated with disease prognosis (P<0.05). In conclusion, DNMT3A polymorphisms may be potential predictive markers for AML patients’ outcomes, which might improve prognostic stratification of AML.
