Reduced expression of serum miR-204 predicts poor prognosis of gastric cancer
“Reduced expression of serum miR-204 predicts poor prognosis of gastric cancer”, vol. 15, p. -, 2016.,
Deregulation of microRNAs (miRNAs) is implicated in the initiation and progression of gastric cancer (GC). Previous studies have demonstrated that miR-204 was downregulated in GC tissues. However, its expression profile in serum samples and its potential for clinical value remain unknown. Real-time PCR was performed to evaluate the expression level of serum miR-204 in patients with GC. The association between serum miR-204 expression level and the clinical outcome of GC was then investigated.
