Circulating endothelial cells were isolated from patients experiencing acute myocardial infarction (n=49) and from healthy cohorts (n=50). The patients were separated into a discovery cohort (n=43) for biomarker discovery and model training; and into a validation cohort (n=56) for biomarker validation and model testing.
expression profiling of primary human keratinocytes transfected with 10nM miR-31 hairpin inhibitor (anti-miR-31) or control hairpin RNA (anti-miR-Ctrl) for 48 hours (biological triplicates in each group) was performed using the Affymetrix GeneTitan system.
The proposed biomarker-selection strategy relies on modules for reducing highly dimensional microarray data sets in a stepwise manner. Starting from the full set of 28 modules, only those for which a set minimum proportion of transcripts are significantly changed between the study groups are selected (e.g., minimum proportion of differentially expressed transcripts at p < 0.05 = 15% overexpressed or underexpressed transcripts; in the example given, 11 SLE modules meet this criterion). This el...
RNA was isolated from whole skin punch biopsies of either healthy or non-lesional psoraisis patients at baseline or 24 hours after placebo or IFN-g injection.
Gene expression profiles were generated from induced sputum samples from 47 asthma patients and were grouped by the inflammatory phenotype assigned using sputum cell counts into neutrophilic asthma (n=12), eosinophilic asthma (n=17) and paucigranulocytic asthma (n=18). RNA was extracted, amplified and hybridised to Illumina Sentrix HumanRef-8 Version 2 Expression BeadChips, and genes that were differentially expressed between asthma inflammatory phenotypes were compared.
