Circulating miRNAs as Biomarkers for Mitochondrial Neuro-Gastrointestinal Encephalomyopathy.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Apr 1;22(7). Epub 2021 Apr 1.

Molecular and Clinical Sciences, St. George's, University of London, London SW17 0RE, UK.

Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy (MNGIE) is an ultra-rare disease for which there are currently no validated outcome measures for assessing therapeutic intervention efficacy. The aim of this study was to identify a plasma and/or serum microRNA (miRNA) biomarker panel for MNGIE. Sixty-five patients and 65 age and sex matched healthy controls were recruited and assigned to one of four study phases: (i) discovery for sample size determination; (ii) candidate screening; (iii) candidate validation; and (iv) verifying the performance of the validated miRNA panel in four patients treated with erythrocyte-encapsulated thymidine phosphorylase (EE-TP), an enzyme replacement under development for MNGIE.
