Techniques: A 15-microRNA (miRNA) signature to predict survival in patients with colon, pancreatic and stomach cancers

Biomarkers TECHNOLOGY: Gene profiling A 15-microRNA signature associated with high doublecortin-like kinase 1 (DCLK1) activity could help predict survival in colon, pancreatic and stomach cancers. In colon, esophageal, pancreatic, rectal and stomach tumor samples from patients, high...

Techniques: MicroRNA let-7c (MIRLET7C; let-7c), microRNA-99a (miR-99a) and microRNA-125b (miR-125b) as prognostic markers of luminal breast cancer

Bio Markers TECHNOLOGY: Markers Studies in patient samples and cell culture suggest let-7c, miR-99a and miR-125b could serve as prognostic markers in patients with estrogen receptor-positive luminal breast cancers. MicroRNA profiling showed that levels of let-7c, miR-99A...

miRNAs sounding better

Hearing loss is a field that has been totally refractory to drug treatment. Now, British and Spanish researchers have converged on microRNA-96, or elements downstream of it, as a potential therapeutic target for treating age-related...
