Integrating microRNAs into a system biology approach to acute lung injury
Acute lung injury (ALI), including the ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) and the more severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), are common and complex inflammatory lung diseases potentially affected by various ...
Pharmacogenomic Discovery Delineating the Genetic Basis of Drug Response
(Springer Verlag, 2013-09)
Personalized medicine has the promise to tailor medical care based on the patient’s genetic make-up and clinical variables such as gender, race and exposure to environmental stimuli. Recent progress in pharmacogenetic and ...
MicroRNAs Implicated in Dysregulation of Gene Expression Following Human Lung Transplantation
Background: Lung transplantation remains the only viable treatment option for the majority of patients with advanced lung diseases. However, 5-year post-transplant survival rates remain low primarily secondary to chronic ...
Bioinformatic resources of microRNA sequences, gene targets, and genetic variation
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012)
Variation in quantitative gene expression has been observed in natural populations and associated with various complex traits/phenotypes such as risks for common diseases and drug response. MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a family ...
