BackgroundDespite prompt and appropriate care, Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) meningitis remains a key cause of childhood morbidity and mortality. Recently, several studies suggested the possibility of microRNAs (miRNA) involvement in multiple brain and infectious diseases. This study aimed to investigate the expressional changes of brain-enriched miRNAs (124, 134, 9, and 138), and inflammation-related miRNAs (132, 181a, 221, and 222) in the cerebral cortex of acute S. pneumoniae… CONTINUE READING
