Abstract

Despite promising developments of treatment, the mortality of gastric cancer remains high. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding RNA molecules. There are extensive evidences that miRNAs play a dual role, as oncogenes or tumor suppressors through regulating cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. Additionally, some miRNAs, as promising diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers, are specifically related to gastric cancer. In the current review, we have summarized recent data concerning miRNAs in patient with gastric cancer, allowing us a better understanding miRNA as the prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers and the new targets for clinical therapeutic interventions for gastric cancer.
