BACKGROUND Human miRNAs have emerged as potentially useful diagnostic and prognostic markers in cancer within the past decade. Abnormal expression of microRNA-146 (miR-146) has been found in several classes of cancers. OBJECTIVE To explore expression and clinical associations of miR-146a and miR-146b in papillary thyroid carcinoma. METHODS We investigated expressions of miR-146a and miR-146b in tissues and peripheral blood among 128 patients with primary PTC, 120 patients with nodular… CONTINUE READING
