Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, yet few genetic markers of lung cancer risk useful for screening exist. The let-7 family-of-microRNAs (miRNA) are global genetic regulators important in controlling lung cancer oncogene expression by binding to the 3' untranslated regions of their target mRNAs. The purpose of this study was to(More)
OBJECTIVE Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common gynecologic malignancy. Type I EC has a favorable prognosis, while type II ECs account for half of all treatment failures. Little knowledge of the biological differences is available to predict EC outcomes besides their pathological distinctions. MicroRNAs (miRNA) are a family of non-translated RNAs(More)
Melanoma is an aggressive cancer that is highly resistance to therapies once metastasized. We studied microRNA (miRNA) expression in clinical melanoma subtypes and evaluated different miRNA signatures in the background of gain of function somatic and inherited mutations associated with melanoma. Total RNA from 42 patient derived primary melanoma cell lines(More)
Antidepressant medications are commonly prescribed for older adults with depressive symptoms who may not have a major depressive disorder. Yet the effect of antidepressants on depressive symptoms in this population over time is largely unknown. We sought to determine whether the use of antidepressant medications is associated with a reduction in the(More)
