Keystone Symposium: Noncoding RNAs in Development and Cancer

June 27, 2012

Date and Location: January 20—25, 2013 Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada Meeting Summary: A recurrent principle in cancer biology is the co-option of pathways that function during development to promote aberrant tumor cell behavior. This principle clearly applies to the roles of noncoding RNAs in cancer. Examples of noncoding RNAs that modify tumor […]

Plasma Components Affect Accuracy of Circulating Cancer-Related MicroRNA Quantitation

December 7, 2011

New protocols improve detection of microRNAs for diagnosis Philadelphia, PA, — MicroRNAs (miRNAs) that regulate processes including fertilization, development, and aging show promise as biomarkers of disease. They can be collected from routinely collected fluids such as blood, saliva, and urine. However, a number of factors can interfere with the accuracy of miRNA tests. In […]

Study Shows Potential for microRNAs to Predict Gastric Cancer Recurrence

November 4, 2011

AIM: To compare the microRNA (miR) profiles in the primary tumor of patients with recurrent and non-recurrent gastric cancer. CONCLUSION: This study identified three miRs, miR-451, miR-199a-3p and miR-195 to be predictive of recurrence of gastric cancer. Of these, miR-451 had the strongest prognostic impact. PHILADELPHIA and REHOVOT, Israel, Nov. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Rosetta […]
