Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a disease of unknown etiology with considerable morbidity and mortality. Seeking informative diagnostic markers with greater clinical significance is essential for the early diagnosis of IPF. microRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) have emerged as novel serum diagnostic biomarkers for various diseases. In this study, we performed microarray analysis of the miRNA expression profile in the serum of patients with IPF compared to that of control subjects. We then performed… CONTINUE READING
