  • Publication number: 20170262581
    Abstract: In a method for comparative analysis, the expression levels of the target miRNAs in each body fluid sample are corrected using the expression level(s) of a correcting endogenous miRNA(s) that is/are simultaneously measured with the expression levels of the target miRNAs in the sample. As the correcting endogenous miRNA(s), one or more miRNAs selected from specific 10 kinds of correcting endogenous miRNAs is/are used. Comparative analysis of target miRNAs among body fluid samples can be carried out more accurately than by conventional techniques.
