BACKGROUND AND AIM Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a type of inflammatory bowel disease, considered as an important disease of gastrointestinal tract having a huge impact on the health of the patient. Prolonged inflammation of colon in UC patients increases the risk of developing colorectal cancer. MiRNA are reported as a connecting link between inflammation and(More)
The objective of this review is to examine the role of miRNA in various inflammatory diseases and in inflammatory diseases progressing to cancer. MicroRNAs are small, conserved, non-coding RNA molecules which are present in most of the eukaryotes. miRNA have been reported to play a major role in the physiological control of gene expression and in the(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of the pure compound salicin on dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis in a mouse model and to quantify the major gut bacteria during the treatment. Experimental colitis was induced in Swiss albino mice by dissolving 2 % DSS in their drinking water for 7 days. Five mice were used in(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM MicroRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that play an important role in regulating the gene expression of their target genes. SNP miR-196a-2 rs11614913 and miR-499 rs3746444 are reported to have association with the risk and prognosis of multiple-types of inflammatory diseases including IBD. This study was conducted to show if any association(More)
