BACKGROUND Bladder cancer (BCa) is the fifth most common cancer with significant morbidity and mortality. Recently, numerous studies demonstrated that microRNAs (miRNAs) are emerging as diagnostic biomarkers for BCa. However, the findings in these studies are inconsistent. To systematically assess the potential diagnostic value of miRNAs for BCa, a(More)
Dermatomyositis (DM) is a type of autoimmune inflammatory myopathy, which primarily affects the skin and muscle. The underlying mechanisms of DM remain poorly understood. The present study aimed to explore gene expression profile alterations, investigate the underlying mechanisms, and identify novel targets for DM. The GSE48280 dataset, which includes data(More)
The PARK16 locus is considered to play a protective role in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the epidemiological evidence on the relationships between PARK16 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (rs823128, rs1572931, and rs823156) and PD is inconsistent. Therefore, we carried out a meta-analysis to validate the relationships and performed a bioinformatic(More)
The fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene contains a highly polymorphic trinucleotide (CGG) repeat and consists of various allelic forms. Traditionally, 55-200 repeats and over 200 CGG repeats have been highlighted to be associated with ovarian dysfunction and neuro-psychiatric risks. However, previous studies had paid little attention to the allelic(More)
