MiRNAs play an important role as oncogenes and tumor suppressors in induction and suppression of tumor effects. Also in different stages of cancer therapy. High and low expression of some miRNAs could be used as factors for prognosis patients drug resistant. Regulation of these miRNA perform by some other miRNA that can suppression or active the translation of downstream miRNA, Therefore, miRNAs play important role in the individual treatments and classification of miRNA in diagnosis and prognosis is highly valuable, also we could consider miRNA as a setting key for switching and off of genes.
