microRNA Diagnostics and Therapeutics
Published/Hosted by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co. KG.
After a decade of the discovery of this regulatory class of short non-coding RNA genes, microRNAs have brought about conceptual innovations and technological advances to virtually all fields of biological and biomedical sciences. In this relatively short period of time, thanks to intense, competent and competitive investigations, we have witnessed how basic research findings on specific microRNAs have already reached patients as phase II clinical trials. Collectively, these investigations have provided a solid foundation for the utilization of microRNA-based strategies in management and treatment of human disease.Recognizing the extraordinary potential and dimension of this rapidly expanding field, microRNA Diagnostics and Therapeutics (miRNA Dx/Rx) publishes original research and reviews on development, implementation and clinical application of microRNA-based diagnostic and therapeutic tools. miRNA Dx/Rx covers various areas of human disease, including cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, neurodegenerative conditions, and cancer. miRNA Dx/Rx focuses on diagnostic applications in clinical specimens and demonstration of therapeutic validity of microRNA-based approaches in animal models and advances.
