miRNA Biology in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia.

microRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of small non-coding RNAs that play a crucial regulatory role in fundamental biological processes and have been implicated in various diseases, including cancer. The first evidence of the cancer-related function of miRNAs was discovered in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) in the early 2000s. Alterations in miRNA expression have since been shown to strongly influence the clinical course, prognosis, and response to treatment in patients with CLL. Therefore, the identification of specific miRNA alterations not only enhances our understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying CLL but also holds promise for the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. This review aims to provide a comprehensive summary of the current knowledge and recent insights into miRNA dysregulation in CLL, emphasizing its pivotal roles in disease progression, including the development of the lethal Richter syndrome, and to provide an update on the latest translational research in this field.
