BackgroundIn this study, we aimed to identify microRNA from urine of multiple myeloma patients that could serve as a biomarker for the disease.

ResultsAnalysis of urine samples was performed using Serum-Plasma Focus PCR MicroRNA Panel Exiqon and verified using individual TaqMan miRNA assays for qPCR. We found 20 deregulated microRNA p < 0.05; for further validation, we chose 8 of them. Nevertheless, only differences in expression levels of miR-22-3p remained close to statistical significance.

ConclusionsOur preliminary results did not confirm urine microRNA as a potential biomarker for multiple myeloma.
