MicroRNA-31 Identified as Possible Predictor for Crohn’s Disease Severity

MicroRNA-31 Identified as Possible Predictor for Crohn’s Disease Severity
The levels of a molecule named microRNA-31 may serve as indicators of disease severity and progression in adults and children with Crohn’s disease (CD). “For such a clinically heterogenous [with diverse presentations] disease, this kind of molecular phenotyping [marking] is a major step towards personalization of medical therapy,” Shehzad Z. Sheikh, MD, PhD, co-author of the paper and associate professor of medicine and genetics at UNC School of Medicine said in a press release. The study, “Colonic epithelial miR-31 associates with the development of Crohn’s phenotypes,” was published in t
