Abstract:


Background and objective: This study aimed to assess miR21 and miR-29a diagnostic usefulness for HPV infection and Cervical Cancer (CC) detection.

Methods: miRs extraction has been performed on HPV-positive, CC and negative control of 43, 50 and 46 individuals, respectively. Expression level of miRs has been analyzed using Real Time RT-PCR.

Results: There was a correlation between the expression of miRs and the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis in CC and HPV-positive patients.

Conclusion: The correlation between expressions of miRs is notable. ROC curve analysis could be applied in molecular diagnostic exposure for CC related to HPV infections.

Keywords:
