E-GEOD-46282 - Expression data of multiple sclerosis patients receiving Interferon-beta therapy [miRNA-2_0]
Released on 24 April 2013, last updated on 29 April 2013
The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression dynamics of mRNAs and microRNAs in response to subcutaneous IFN-beta-1b treatment (Betaferon, 250 µg every other day) in patients with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) suggestive of multiple sclerosis (MS) or relapsing-remitting type of the disease (RRMS). By using Affymetrix microarrays, we obtained microRNA expression profiles of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from 3 MS patients within the first month of IFN-beta treatment. EDTA blood samples were taken from all patients immediately before first IFN-beta injection as well as after 1 month. Total RNA of Ficoll-isolated peripheral blood mononuclear cells from each sample was extracted, labeled and hybridized to Affymetrix GeneChip miRNA 2.0 arrays to quantify the expression of small non-coding RNA transcripts. This GEO entry provides the GeneChip miRNA 2.0 microarray data.
