    Abstract
    Background
    Although patients with coronary artery disease have a high mortality rate, the pathogenesis of CAD is still poorly understood. During the past decade, microRNAs have emerged as new, potential diagnostic biomarkers in several diseases, including CAD. This study aimed to investigate the expression profiles of miRNAs in individuals with CAD and non-CAD.
    Methods and results
    The Agilent's microarray analyses were performed to compare the whole blood miRNA profile of selected individuals with severe CAD and non-CAD. Expressions of selected differentially expressed miRNAs were...
