Background:In this paper, the utility of urine-circulating microRNAs (miRNAs) as the potential biomarker of prostate cancer (PCa), the second most prevalent male cancer worldwide, was evaluated.Methods:Cancerous (N=56) and non-cancerous (N=16) prostate tissues were analysed on TaqMan Low Density Array, with the initial screening of 754 miRNAs in a subset of the samples. The abundance of selected miRNAs was analysed in urine specimens from two independent cohorts of patients with PCa (N=215… CONTINUE READING
