Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is posing a serious health problem worldwide. The association between its pathogenesis and microRNAs (miRNA) has not been elucidated. In this study, miRNA expression profiling was performed to screen the miRNA expression changes in 8 NPC tissues and 4 normal nasopharyngeal tissues. Thirty-four miRNAs were identified to be differentially expressed; of these, one miRNA (miR-18a) was overexpressed and 33 miRNAs (miR-34b, miR-34c, let-7 family, etc.) were… CONTINUE READING
