Identification of four prognostic lncRNAs for survival prediction of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma

lncRNA

As the fifth most common cancer worldwide, Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is also the third most common cause of cancer-related death in China. Several lncRNAs have been demonstrated to be associated with occurrence and prognosis of HCC. However, identification of prognostic lncRNA signature for HCC with expression profiling data has not been conducted yet. With the reuse of public available TCGA ...

Panel of seven long noncoding RNA as a candidate prognostic biomarker for ovarian cancer

lncRNA

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common and lethal gynecological malignancies. The diagnosis of ovarian cancer is often at an advanced stage. Accumulated evidence suggests that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important roles during ovarian tumorigenesis. In this study, using the lncRNA-mining approach, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Fudan University analyzed lncRNA expression profiles of 493 ...

Could long non-coding RNAs be used as biomarkers for urothelial carcinoma?

exosomes

Bioanalysis Zone – Amy Craddock, Future Science Group – Collaborative research from medical faculties across Germany and Hungary has investigated the potential use of long non-coding RNAs as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for urothelial carcinoma. In previous studies, it has been identified that a number of long non-coding RNAs are overexpressed in urothelial carcinoma; as a result it has been ...

A long non-coding RNA signature to improve prognosis prediction of gastric cancer

lncRNA

Increasing evidence suggests long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are frequently aberrantly expressed in cancers, however, few related lncRNA signatures have been established for prediction of cancer prognosis. Scientists at Shanghai JiaoTong University aimed at developing a lncRNA signature to improve prognosis prediction of gastric cancer (GC). Using a lncRNA-mining approach, they performed lncRNA expression profiling in large GC cohorts from Gene ...
