Methamphetamine, one of the most frequently used illicit drugs worldwide, can induce psychosis in a large fraction of abusers and it is becoming a major problem for the health care institutions. There is some evidence that genetic and epigenetic factors may play roles in methamphetamine psychosis. In this study, we examined methamphetamine-induced epigenetic and expression changes of several key genes involved in psychosis. RNA and DNA extracted from the saliva samples of patients with methamphetamine dependency with and without psychosis as well as control subjects (each group 25) were analyzed for expression and promoter DNA methylation status of DRD1, DRD2, DRD3, DRD4, MB-COMT, GAD1, and AKT1 using qRT-PCR and q-MSP, respectively...

Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is an aggressive malignancy with a very poor prognosis, and excessive resistance to chemotherapy. MicroRNAs have been shown to play important roles in PDAC oncogenesis as they can act as both oncogenes and tumor suppressor molecules. Altered expression of specific microRNAs in PDAC has diagnostic and prognostic implications. There is growing body of evidence showing the important role of miR-486-5p and miR-938 for discrimination of PDAC patients from healthy subjects and those with chronic pancreatitis...
