Downregulation of microRNA‑155 by preoperative administration of valproic acid prevents postoperative seizures by upregulating SCN1A.

Abstract

The risk of seizure is increased following brain surgery such as cranioplasty. Patients with seizures that are treated with valproic acid (VPA) may have a decreased risk of further seizures. To verify microRNA (miR)‑155 as a potential biomarker for the occurrence of seizures, reverse transcription quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT‑qPCR) was used… (More)
