Diagnostic value of miR-637 in patients with atherosclerosis and its predictive significance for the future cardiovascular events

Yuxia XuXinxiang Zhao


Atherosclerosis is a common vascular disease. MiR-637 has been demonstrated to be low-expressed in hypertensive patients, and atherosclerosis is closely related to hypertension. Therefore, this study speculated that miR-637 may play an important role in the development of atherosclerosis. In brief, this study examined the expression level of miR-637 in patients with atherosclerosis and further analyzed its clinical value in patients with atherosclerosis. The expression level of miR-637 was detected in serum from 86 patients with atherosclerosis and 75 healthy controls by using quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. The receiver operating characteristic curve was used to assess the diagnostic value of miR-637 in atherosclerosis. Pearson's correlation analysis was performed to evaluate the relationship between serum miR-637 and different clinical parameters. The prognostic value of miR-637 in atherosclerosis was analyzed by the Kaplan-Meier survival curve and multivariate cox regression analysis. Compared with healthy individuals, miR-637 was downregulated in the serum of atherosclerosis patients. The receiver operating characteristic curve suggested the high diagnostic value of miR-637 for atherosclerosis,...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Landau-Kleffner Syndrome

Landau Kleffner syndrome (LKS), also called infantile acquired aphasia, acquired epileptic aphasia, or aphasia with convulsive disorder, is a rare childhood neurological syndrome characterized by the sudden or gradual development of aphasia (the inability to understand or express language) and an abnormal electroencephalogram. Discover the latest research on LKS here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.
