Patterns of Circulating Microbiota during the Acute Phase Following ST-Segment Elevation Myocardial Infarction Predict Long-Term Cardiovascular Events.


Limited information exists regarding whether circulating microbiota could predict long-term clinical outcomes following ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). A total of 244 consecutive patients with STEMI were followed for 2.8 years, and 64 first major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) were recorded. Both microbiota abundance [Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum (HR, 1.28; 95% CI, 1.03-1.58) and Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) (HR, 1.16; 95% CI, 1.02-1.33) ] and microbiota clusters (Cluster 2 versus Cluster 1: HR, 1.84; 95% CI, 1.04-3.27) could independently predict MACE. Furthermore, a model based on established independent predictors alone was significantly improved by the addition of different microbiota patterns. In addition, CD14++CD16+ monocytes (Mon2) had a significant mediation effect on the microbiota patterns MACE association. The present study demonstrated that the abundance and clusters of circulating microbiota are associated with future adverse cardiovascular events independent of traditional risk factors, which were partially mediated by an increase in Mon2.
