      Examination of microRNAs expression in plasma could be useful in screening and in early detection of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). One of the most important enzymes in miRNA biogenesis are Dicer and Drosha. Disrupted expression of miRNA with ability to reciprocal regulation of Dicer and Drosha could participate in cancer development.

      Plasma expression of miR-27-3p, miR-31, miR-182 and miR-195 were analysed in 138 Polish NSCLC patients (median age 65 years, 83 male and 55 female) and in 45 healthy people (median age 62 years, 28 male and 17 female). 57 (41.3%) NSCLC patient were in I-IIIA stage and 81 (58.7%) patients were in IIIB-IV stage. Relative expression of microRNAs between studied groups was compared using U Mann-Whitney test. For assessment of diagnostic accuracy (test sensitivity and specificity), the receiver operating curves (ROC) with area under curve (AUC) analysis were generated.

      We demonstrated that plasma levels of miR-27-3p, miR-31 and miR-182 were significantly higher (p<0.000001, p=0.00008, p=0.006 respectively) and miR-195 significantly lower (p=0.000002) in NSCLC patients in comparison with healthy donors. Moreover, patients with early stages (I-IIIA) of NSCLC showed significantly higher expression of miR-27a-3p (p<0.000001), miR-31 (p=0.0003) and miR-182 (p=0.000003) than healthy persons. Expression of miR-195 was significantly lower in patients with early stages (I-IIIA) of NSCLC than in healthy donors (p<0.000001). AUC for miR-27a was 0.95 (94% sensitivity and 81% specificity, p<0.00001), for miR-31 was 0.71 (73% sensitivity and 61% specificity, p=0.001), for miR-182 was 0.77 (70% sensitivity and 79% specificity, p<0.00001) and for miR-195 was 0.82 (74% sensitivity and 80% specificity, p=0.00001).

      Expression of miR-27a, miR-31, miR-182 and miR-195 could distinguish patients with NSCLC from healthy people. The examination of these microRNAs in plasma could be used in non-invasive lung cancer diagnosis. Deregulation of Dicer and Drosha expression by microRNAs could have oncogenic character.
