Identification of microRNAs as diagnostic biomarkers in screening of head and neck cancer: a meta-analysis

M. Zhang, Zhao, L. J., Liang, W. Q., and Mao, Z. P., Identification of microRNAs as diagnostic biomarkers in screening of head and neck cancer: a meta-analysis, vol. 14, pp. 16562-16576, 2015.

Head and neck cancer (HNC) is one of the most prevalent cancers; it is often diagnosed at its advanced stage and has a low 5-year survival rate. Evidence suggests that noninvasive biomarker microRNAs (miRNAs) are valuable for early diagnosis of HNC. This meta-analysis assessed the diagnostic value of miRNAs in HNC detection. A systematic literature search for relevant studies up to August 4, 2014 was conducted in databases and other sources. Statistical analysis was conducted using STATA 12.0.
