BACKGROUND The role of microRNA (miRNA)-200b in the pathogenesis of proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) has been studied in diabetic animal models. The aim of this study was to assess miRNA-200b expression in the vitreous of patients with PDR and to determine its correlation with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), one of the pathogenic mechanisms in PDR. METHODS Quantitative reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction was used to measure miRNA-200b expression in the vitreous… CONTINUE READING
