MicroRNA expression profiles may help with cancer diagnosis

Postby click2hrn » Thu Jun 23, 2005 11:15 pm

The study published in the journal Nature tells us the following information: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) were generally down-regulated in tumors compared with normal tissues. miRNA expression profiles were used to classify poorly differentiated tumors successfully; whereas messenger RNA profiles were highly inaccurate when applied to the same samples. This study indicates the potential of miRNA profiling in cancer diagnosis.

Source Paper from Nature:

Lu J, Getz G, Miska EA, Alvarez-Saavedra E, Lamb J, Peck D, Sweet-Cordero A (2005) MicroRNA expression profiles classify human cancers. Nature, 435:834-838
