miRNA expression profiling remains very crucial for understanding the underlying mechanisms of cancer initiation, progression, invasion or metastasis and developing novel and promising therapeutic applications against cancer. Meanwhile, further studies elucidating miRNAs’ mechanisms of action are necessary to
shed light on how miRNAs function in cancer pathogenesis and to overcome the putative challenges like side effects and problems in delivery to their right targets.
