Work over the last decade has revealed novel regulatory mechanisms in pathological disease states that are mediated by microRNAs and has inspired researchers to begin elucidating the specific roles of miRNAs in the regulation of genes involved in cancer development and progression. Recently, miRNAs have been explored as therapeutic targets and diagnostic markers of cancer. In this paper, we review recent advances in the study of miRNAs involved in tumorigenesis, focusing on miRNA regulation of genes that have been demonstrated to play critical roles in lung cancer development. We discuss miRNA regulation of genes that play critical roles in the process of malignant transformation, angiogenesis and tumor metastasis, the dysregulation of miRNA expression in cancer development, and the development of miRNA-based diagnostics and therapeutics.
