Microarray Analysis of microRNA Expression Profiles in Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a novel class of short RNAs which have shown to be dysregulated in a variety of cancers. Data of miRNA expression in cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is very limited and microarray based genome wide miRNA expression profiles of cSCC have not been investigated so far.
Condition or disease
Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Patients with cutaneous SCC were enrolled in the present study. Tumor biopsies were taken from the center of the tumor. Adjacent healthy skin was biopsied as a control (intraindividual control). miRNA expression profiles of specimen were detected by microarray miRNA expression profiling. Microarray results were confirmed by TaqMan real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR).
