Abstract

Ovarian cancer (OC) is one of the most fatal malignancies in women. High mortality rate may be due to problems with diagnosis in the early stages. The use of new biomarkers for faster diagnosis and selection of more efficient therapies is one of the main concerns in this area. miRNAs are non-coding and conserved molecules that are involved in regulating gene expression throughout different cell processes. Few studies have been conducted on the effects of miR-4443 and miR-5195-3p in cancer. Therefore, to determine the role of these miRNAs in OC, this study was directed to investigate the expression rate in OC tissue samples and its relationship with clinical factors.
