BACKGROUND Abnormal levels of microRNAs (miRNAs) have been found in the blood or its components in a number of different cancers including colorectal cancer. In addition to being abundant in circulation, miRNAs show remarkable stability in both plasma and serum making miRNAs ideal markers for early detection in colorectal cancer. Several miRNAs have been identified as potential circulating biomarkers although none have been incorporated into clinical practice. OBJECTIVE To identify the most… CONTINUE READING
