Dysregulation of microRNA (miRNA) levels is observed in diverse disease states. Early studies showed that by analyzing the expression profile of miRNAs in the tissue sample of a diseased person, it was possible to classify the disease into a specific subtype. To be used for diagnostic purposes more practically, however, a less invasive method than tissue biopsy is required. Surprisingly, it was discovered that a notable amount of extracellular miRNAs circulate throughout the body fluids with… CONTINUE READING
