    Background/aim: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are known up-to-date candidate biomarkers for several diseases. In addition, obtaining miRNA from different body fluids such as serum, plasma, saliva, and urine is relatively easy to handle. Herein we aimed to detect miRNAs as biomarkers for early stage prostate cancer (PC). For this purpose, we used urine and serum samples to detect any significant differences in miRNA profiles between patients and healthy controls. Materials and methods: Total ribonucleic acid (RNA) in urine and serum samples were isolated from eight untreated PC patients, thirty healthy individuals were screened for miRNA profile, and candidate miRNAs were validated. Whole urinary and serum miRNA profile was analyzed using Affymetrix GeneChip miRNA 4.0 Arrays. Candidate miRNAs were investigated by stem-loop reverse transcription- polymerase chain reaction. Results: When we analyzed the urinary samples of PC patients, 49 miRNAs were detected to be upregulated and 14 miRNAs were found to be downregulated when compared with healthy controls. According to the serum samples, 19 miRNAs were found to be upregulated, and 21 miRNAs were found to be downregulated when compared with healthy individuals as well. Interestingly, we detected only four overlapping miRNAs (MIR320A, MIR4535, MIR4706, MIR6750) that commonly increase or decrease in both serum and urine samples. Among them, MIR320A was found to be downregulated, and MIR4535, MIR4706, and MIR6750 were found to be upregulated for urine samples. However, only MIR6750 was upregulated and the other three miRNAs were downregulated for serum samples. Conclusion: Notably, the expression profile of MIR320A was significantly altered in urine specimens of prostate cancer patients. We considered that MIR320A has been evaluated as a valuable biomarker that can be used in the early diagnosis of PC.

    A Preliminary Investigation on the Chromosome Aberrations in Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia Using Multiprobe Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization Panel
    Objective: Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a disease related to the overproduction of immature lymphocytes. For diagnosis and classification of ALL, recognizing chromosome aberrations using conventional cytogenetic analysis (CCA) is essential. However, limited ability of CCA to capture cryptical chromosomal aberrations is a major drawback. The aim of this study was to investigate recurrent aberrations in patients with ALL with normal karyotype or unsuccessful karyotyping using the fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) method. Methods: Ten patients with ALL were included in this study. CCA was done according to the standart protocols, and then, multiprobe FISH panel was used for analyzing different chromosomal regions located on 12p13.2/21q22.12, 9q34.11-q34.12/22q11.22-q11.23, 9p21.3, 19p13.3, 11q23.3, 8q24.21, 14q32.33, 10p11.1-q11.1, 17p11.1-q11.1 and 4q12. Results: Analyses of the specific chromosomal regions with FISH assay revealed undetected chromosome rearrangements. Among all the cases, four of them harbored chromosomal abnormalities. MYC, TCF3, IGH rearrangements, CDKN2A deletion and hyperdiploidy were detected in the study Conclusion: Diagnostic sensitivity of FISH probes in comparison with CCA is effective in the detection of multiple chromosomal rearrangements with prognostic significance. For the improvement of the cytogenetic examination and achieving optimum results for patients with ALL , FISH panels are needed to be used combining with conventional cytogenetics routinely.
