Authors: Chen W, Cai G, Liao Z, Lin K, Li G, Li Y Abstract miRNAs are closely associated with tumor genesis and development. The present study investigated the role of the expression of miRNA-766 in the survival of patients with colon cancer and the underlying molecular mechanisms. Reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis and microarray analysis were used to analyze the expression of miRNA-766. The results revealed that the expression of miRNA-766 was decreased in patients with colon cancer. The overall survival and disease-free survival rates of patients with colon cancer with a high e...

Authors: Fang Z, Li C, Li S Abstract To explore microRNA (miR)-193b expression and its potential role in colon cancer, reverse transcription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction was performed to detect the miR-193b expression levels in 62 colon cancer tissues and normal adjacent tissues. The miR-193b-overexpressed cell line SW620 was used to study the role of miR-193b in colon cancer. Subsequently, a Transwell assay and cell cycle assay were performed to observe the functional cell changes in the in vitro expression levels of miR-193b. Results indicated that miR-193b expression levels were significantly decreased...

Popovici V Abstract The dysfunction of the DNA mismatch repair system results in microsatellite instability (MSI). MSI plays a central role in the development of multiple human cancers. In colon cancer, despite being associated with resistance to 5-fluorouracil treatment, MSI is a favourable prognostic marker. In gastric and endometrial cancers, its prognostic value is not so well established. Nevertheless, recognising the MSI tumours may be important for predicting the therapeutic effect of immune checkpoint inhibitors. Several gene expression signatures were trained on microarray data sets to understand the reg...

Yi-Cheng Gao, Xiong-Hui Zhou* and Wen Zhang* Hubei Key Laboratory of Agricultural Bioinformatics, College of Informatics, Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China Due to the high heterogeneity and complexity of cancer, it is still a challenge to predict the prognosis of cancer patients. In this work, we used a clustering algorithm to divide patients into different subtypes in order to reduce the heterogeneity of the cancer patients in each subtype. Based on the hypothesis that the gene co-expression network may reveal relationships among genes, some communities in the network could influence the prognosis o...
