Discovering microRNA biomarkers in cancer

In recent years, research into microRNA biomarkers for cancer has expanded, yielding many potential signatures for a variety of cancer types. MicroRNAs are promising biomarker candidates due to their stability in circulation in association with Ago2, HDL or extracellular vesicles, and their important gene regulation roles in multiple cancer-related processes. Multiple methods are available for miRNA… Read article →
