  • Patent number: 10358681
    Abstract: The present application concerns a new in vitro method for assessing the prognosis of a prostate cancer patient, comprising measuring the expression level of at least two miRs selected from group of miRs consisting of: miR-106a-5p, miR-10b-5p, miR-133a-3p, mi R-152-3p, miR-185-5p, miR-193a-5p, miR-221-3p, miR-23a-3p, miR-30d-3p, miR-326, mi R-374b-5p, miR-615-3p and mi R-625-3p in a RNA sample from prostate cells obtained from said patient, wherein a changed expression level of said at least 2 miRs, as compared to a reference expression profile, is indicative of the prognosis of said prostate cancer patient.

  • Publication number: 20060240426
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of predicting the prognosis of a biological condition in animal tissue, wherein the expression of genes is examined and correlated to standards. The invention further relates to the treatment of the biological condition and. an assay for predicting the prognosis. In particular, the invention concerns gene expression in epithelial tissue, such as urinary bladder under both normal and abnormal conditions.
