Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most common cancers and a significant cause of tumor- related deaths worldwide. Traditional biomarkers, such as CEA and CA199, are not sensitive enough to provide useful information for early diagnosis and treatment and are rather used to track the clinical progression of the disease. There is growing evidence that microRNAs (miRNA) are potentially superior to traditional biomarkers as promising non-invasive biomarkers for the timely diagnosis and prediction of prognosis or treatment response in the management of CRC. In this review, the latest studies on the dysregulation of miRNAs expression in CRC and the potential for miRNAs to serve as biomarkers were collected. Given the limitations of miRNA, as discussed in this paper, its clinical applications as a diagnostic biomarker should be limited to use in combination with other biomarkers. Further research is necessary to elucidate the clinical applications of miRNA in therapy for CRC.

Keywords: Colorectal cancer, microRNAs, diagnosis, prognosis, radiotherapy, chemoradiotherapy
