circRNAs and miRNAs in the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma: the long race to new targets

Authors: Silvia Fittipaldi, Francesco Vasuri

Abstract

The work by Yu and colleagues, recently published on the Journal of Hepatology (1) represents the latest step on a greatly debated and cherished argument: the mechanisms and clinical applicability of circular RNAs (circRNAs) and other non-coding RNAs (in primis microRNAs) in human tumoral disease, and in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in particular.
