Delirium, cerebrovascular accidents, postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD), and spinal cord ischaemia are among the most devastating perioperative neurological outcomes. In an attempt to address these outcomes, it would be helpful to identify patients at risk, predict their short- and long-term outcomes, monitor them perioperatively, and possibly apply neuroprotective interventions aimed at improving such outcomes. There is no available methodology to...
- The complexity of higher organisms is regulated through the coordinated control of biological networks, including miRNAs. Computational networks have previously been generated using miRNA array data. For the first time, we have applied a similar approach to circulating miRNAs.
- Biomarkers are substances, structures, or processes that can be measured in biological samples such as urine, blood, or saliva. A biomarker is a measurable characteristic in a biological system that changes due to disease, exposure to chemicals, or exposure to organisms.
