BACKGROUND Aberrant expression and structural alteration of miRNAs are considered to participate in inflammation and cancer development. It has been suggested that common single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in miRNAs are associated with susceptibility to several human diseases. METHODS In the present preliminary study we evaluated the associations of(More)
A case report is presented of Richter hernia of the stomach, after en bloc excision of multiple organs for sarcoma of the left upper quadrant of the abdomen. To our knowledge this is the first case reported in the literature.

A 37-year-old healthy woman had a session of acupuncture treatments for neck and right upper thoracic non-specific(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs that are implicated in gene expression regulation at both a transcriptional and at a translational level. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms may occur in miRNA biogenesis pathway genes, primary miRNA, pre-miRNA, or a mature miRNA sequence. Such polymorphisms may be functional with respect to biogenesis and actions of(More)
