Italian Researchers Detect MicroRNA Signature for Arterial Plaque Instability | GenomeWeb

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Expression levels of five microRNAs in arterial plaque build up can help predict which individuals are at elevated risk of having these plaques break free, a situation that can lead to stroke and other disease, according to study appearing online last night in the American Heart Association journal Stroke.
