Introduction Acromegaly is a chronic disease of increased growth hormone (GH) secretion and elevated insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) levels induced by a pituitary adenoma. HMGA2 (high mobility group A2) and AIP (aryl hydrocarbon receptor-interacting protein) expression levels are related to GH-secreting adenomas, and also a response to Somatostatin Analogs (SSAs). We studied SNPs in miR-107 and miR-23b that related with AIP and HMGA2 genes respectively and control their expression, and also SNP in the 3'UTR of HMGA2 gene. Our aim was to investigate genotype distributions of the studied SNPs, as well as the possible relationship between disease and/or response to SSAs treatment in patients with acromegaly.
