We are pleased to announce that the results of our research in collaboration with Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Maria Skłodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology in Gliwice and Wrocław Medical University have been published in Radiotherapy&Oncology. Our study provides compelling evidence that specific microRNAs in serum can serve as reliable indicators of radiation exposure and dose in humans, presenting a major breakthrough in the field of biodosimetry.
The identification of miR-150-5p, miR-30b-5p, and miR-320c as potential biomarkers opens up exciting possibilities for the development of a functional biodosimeter that can effectively assess radiation doses in clinical settings, aiding in timely and appropriate medical interventions.
The project was funded by the Foundation for Polish Science grant First TEAM, National Science Center and the Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange.
