Abstract

MicroRNAs have emerged as novel and important regulators of translation. Besides their biological significance, they are being investigated as potential biomarkers of physiological and pathological states. This review article summarizes current investigations of microRNAs as biomarkers in lung cancer. The promises and pitfalls of this exciting new investigational avenue are highlighted.
