Microarray-based gene expression analysis was performed on diagnostic chronic phase CML patient samples prior to interferon treatment. Fifteen patient samples corresponding to six cytogenetic responders and nine non-responders were included. Genes differentially expressed between responder and non-responder patients were listed and a subsequent leave-one-out cross validation (LOOV) procedure showed that the top 20 genes allowed the highest prediction accuracy. The relevant genes were quantified by real-time PCR that supported the microarray results. We conclude that it might be possible to use gene expression analysis to predict future response to interferon in CML diagnostic samples.
