    • Abstract


      Cancer is a physiological condition that has both the endogenous and exogenous influences on its progression. It originatesfrom unusual cell growth, where the cells undergo massive genetic alterations, bypass the signaling machinery andcompromise its genetic cohesion. Literature has well narrated the DNA damage studies including driver mutations thatinterfere with the treatment strategies. However, with evolving medical excellence, recent day studies are trying to unveilthe contribution of RNAs in the progression of tumor malignancies. A number of non-coding RNAs have been identified asan active component in cancer genomics. This article aims to review the role of long non-coding RNAs in the spectra ofcancers and its prognostic value as the biomarkers in molecular targeting with clinical utility and therapeutic beneficence.
