Role of microRNA in the Development of Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma

2014-08-27 03:12:56 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this study is to analyze the differential expression of the miR transcriptome in the distinctive stages of the development of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (C-SCC). In this aim the investigators plan to recruit a cohort of 20 patients suffering of C-SCC and to collect from each of them, biopsies corresponding to i) non UV-exposed areas ii) UV-exposed areas, iii) actinic keratosis and iv) tumoral regions. Total RNAs will be prepared from each biopsy and the miRNA profiles will be characterized using a dedicated miR array.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Viscous, nauseating oil obtained from the shrub Croton tiglium (Euphorbaceae). It is a vesicant and skin irritant used as pharmacologic standard for skin inflammation and allergy and causes skin cancer. It was formerly used as an emetic and cathartic with frequent mortality.

Tumors or cancer of the SKIN.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions. (From National Cancer Institute, NIH Publication No. 91-3074, October 1990)

Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck.
