Functional Significance and Predictive Value of MicroRNAs in Pediatric Obesity: Tiny Molecules with Huge Impact?

Abstract

Obesity is a major health concern. While some children develop comorbidities such as insulin resistance and low-grade systemic inflammation upon weight gain, others stay metabolically healthy. There is an urgent need for clinically relevant markers with prognostic value related to disease development and intervention success. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are… (More)
