High expression of miR-21 and miR-155 predicts recurrence and unfavourable survival in non-small cell lung cancer.
We synthesised the evidence of microRNAs as prognostic biomarkers in lung cancer. Studies were identified by searching PubMed, Embase and Web of Science until March 2012. Descriptive characteristicsExpand
