Cancer Accounting for Almost 50% of All the miRNA Based Research

According to RNCOS, “The potential for using miRNAs in cancer is being explored taking note of the theoretical rationale that miRNAs are natural antisense interactors that regulate many genes involved in eukaryotic survival and proliferation.”


Noida, UP -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/21/2014 -- The potential for using miRNAs in cancer is now being explored. The theoretical rationale is based on the fact that miRNAs are natural antisense interactors that regulate many genes involved in eukaryotic survival and proliferation. Initially identified in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia, changes in the expression level of miRNAs have been subsequently detected by different groups in many types of human tumors.

Breast cancer with a share of 20% seems to have caught the attention of majority of researchers, followed by Leukemia, and Colorectal. Most of these trials are diagnostic in nature and are making use of miRNA as either biomarkers or for profiling purposes. The development of modified miRNA molecules with longer in-vivo half lives and efficiency, such as the locked nucleic acid (LNA)-modified oligonucleotides, the anti-miRNA oligo-nucleotides, and the antagomirs is the first step towards bringing these fundamental research advances into medical practice. Apart from Cancer, other areas of interest include Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases, Hepatitis, Multiple Sclerosis and Sepsis.
