Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third commonest cancer with nearly 1.4 million new cases identified throughout the world in 2012. There is a pressing need for a new non-invasive blood-based test to improve early detection and monitoring of CRC. MiRNAs are small non-coding RNAs involved in fundamental cell processes such as proliferation, survival and death. Studies have identified miRNAs in plasma of cancer patients in a stable form. This study aimed to evaluate whether circulating microRNAs are predictive of response to therapy.
