Abstract

Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecological malignancy and the fourth most common cancer in women. With accumulating evidence, microRNAs have emerged as significant players in the development and progression of cancers. The data points to miR-888 playing an important functional role in the development of aggressive endometrial tumors. Future research will focus on identifying and validating the targets of miR-888 to elucidate its mechanism of action and support this hypothesis

Keywords: miR-888, microRNA, endometrium, endometrial cancer
