Objective: A systematic review was conducted to evaluate recent studies performed on miRNAs as a diagnostic and therapeutic biomarker in breast cancer.
Study Design: Online standard databases like PubMed, EMBASE, Web of Science and COCHRANE library were searched to identify research articles relavant to the topic.
Place and Duration of Study: All online published studies between 2010-2020, in the scientific electronic databases were analyzed.
Materials and Methods: This review was performed according to PRISMA guidelines. Databases were systematically analyzed to explore the diagnostic and therapeutic potentials of miRNAs in breast cancer.
Results: We identified twenty-seven studies after literature search. We found six studies focused on diagnosis, sixteen on therapeutics and five on both diagnosis and therapeutics of miRNAs in breast cancer.
Conclusion: The combined data obtained in the present systematic review specify that miRNAs could serve as novel diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in breast cancer, whereas the practical relevance of the current results has yet to be established.
Keywords: Breast Cancer, Diagnostics, miRNA, Molecular Biomarkers, Therapeutics.
