BACKGROUND MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been reported to be aberrantly expressed in patients with cancer. Many studies have shown that circulating miRNAs could play potential roles as diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of cancers. The aim of this meta-analysis is to summarize the role of circulating miR-21 as a biomarker in patients with a variety of carcinomas. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eligible studies were identified and assessed for quality through multiple search strategies. For diagnostic meta… CONTINUE READING
