Circulating MicroRNAs as stable biomarkers for detection of erythropoiesis-stimulating agent abuse
Project Title: Circulating microRNAs as stable biomarkers for detection of erythropoiesis-stimulating agent abuse
Researchers: N. Leuenberger, M. Saugy, S. Pradervand
Institution: Swiss Laboratory for Doping Analyses, Switzerland
Year accepted: 2010
Summary: In this project, we are going to investigate whether circulating microRNAs can serve as biomarkers for erythropoiesis stimulating agent abuse. To this end we will analyze miRNA levels in serum and plasma by miRNA microarrays and quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR). Plasma and serum samples are derived from clinical studies of healthy subjects injected with erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (C.E.R.A and Dynepo).
