OBJECTIVE To evaluate the diagnostic value of salivary and plasma miR-21 in patients with esophageal cancer (EC). METHODS Total RNA was extracted from saliva and plasma samples from 50 stage I and 50 stage II patients with EC and 50 healthy controls for measurement of miR-21 levels using qPCR. The diagnostic values of salivary and plasma miR-21 levels were assessed for stage I, stage II, and stage I+II EC. RESULTS Salivary and plasma miR-21 were significantly higher in the EC patients than… CONTINUE READING
