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.

Replication studies that don't quite reflect the original findings underscore the need to better share data, the Wall Street Journal reports.

About two-thirds of proposals to work with select agents are denied — though most proposals that come in don't meet the definition of a restricted experiment, according to an analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
