BACKGROUND The identification of new high-sensitivity and high-specificity markers for HCC are essential. We aimed to identify serum microRNAs (miRNAs) as biomarkers to be used in diagnosing hepatitis B virus (HBV) -related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). METHODS We investigated serum miRNA expression in (261 HCC patients, 233 cirrhosis patients, and 173(More)
BACKGROUND The invasive nature of liver biopsy makes the histopathological diagnosis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) difficult and its diagnostic performance unsatisfactory. The present study aimed to identify a serum microRNA (miRNA) expression profile that could serve as a novel diagnostic biomarker for NAFLD. METHODS Serum miRNA expression(More)
BACKGROUND Circulating microRNAs (miRNAs), which are extremely stable and protected from RNAse-mediated degradation in body fluids, have emerged as candidate biomarkers for many diseases. The present study aimed to identify a serum microRNA (miRNA) expression profile that could serve as a novel diagnostic biomarker for primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). (More)
BACKGROUND Circulating miRNAs, a family of miRNAs existing in plasma and serum, have a great potential to serve as novel biomarkers in body fluids for non-invasive diagnosis and prognosis of many diseases. METHODS A multistage, case-control study was designed to establish a panel of serum miRNAs that could be surrogate markers for chronic hepatitis B with(More)
