  • Objective To observe the effect of miR-21 on bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in rats, and explore the related mechanism. Methods Peripheral blood was collected from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) patients (n=20) and healthy adults (n=20). Fluorescence quantitative real-time PCR was then used to measure miR-21 expression. Forty-five SD rats were randomly divided into control group, miR-21 agomir group and miR-21 antagomir group. Each group included 15 rats. After establishment of… CONTINUE READING
