Results from two new studies exploring the role of the microRNA biomarker miR-31-3p in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer were presented during the 2015 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting. The studies reported positive results on the association between miR-31-3p expression and clinical outcomes in metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) patients treated with panitumumab or cetuximab. The data presented further validates previous studies which have documented that miR-31-3p expression in the primary tumor of mCRC patients is predictive of the effect of anti-EGFR therapy.
