MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have a key role in carcinogenesis through the negative regulation of their target genes. This study was conducted to investigate the associations between single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) located in the microRNA target sites (poly-miRTSs) and survival of patients with early-stage non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and to identify the lung cancer prognosis-specific poly-miRTS.
