About this Research Topic
The stability of ncRNAs in body fluids of cancer patients has not been thoroughly explored. Although several studies have demonstrated that ncRNAs, unlike lncRNAs, are highly stable under diverse temperature and storage conditions, our understanding of the former is still at the initial stages, especially for the more recently detected ncRNAs such as microRNA, lncRNAs, piRNAs, and circRNAs.
In this Research Topic, we would like to present the recent advances on the roles of ncRNAs on tumorigenesis, metastasis, chemoresistance, radioresistance as well as their potential clinical applications in solid cancers. We welcome the submission of Original Research, Review and Systematic Review articles dedicated to:
1) The mechanisms of ncRNAs in cancer development and progression
2) Large scale analysis of ncRNAs
3) Identification and validation the ncRNA prognostic model for cancers by TCGA, GEO or original data
