    Improved detection methods for diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma (MM) are essential for detection and treatment. miRNAs isolated from fresh-frozen biopsies of MM patients were tested for the expression of 88 types of miRNA involved in cancerogenesis. Three significantly downregulated miRNAs were assayed in cancerous tissue and adjacent non-cancerous tissue sample pairs collected from 27 formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded MM tissues by quantitative RT-PCR. Only miR-126 remained downregulated in the malignant tissues. The performance of the selected miR-126 as biomarker was evaluated in serum samples of asbestos-exposed subjects and MM patients and compared with controls. MiR-126 was not affected by asbestos exposure, whereas it was found associated with VEGF serum levels. Levels of miR-126 in serum, and its levels in patients' serum in association with a specific marker of MM, SMRPs, correlate with subjects at high risk to develop MM.
