Deregulated miR-379/miR-656 cluster expression is considered as important for carcinogenesis and can be used as a potential prognostic marker. Hence, the meta-analysis was conducted to test the utility of miR-379/miR-656 cluster as a prognostic marker in various cancers. A literature search was performed using Web of Science, PubMed and Cochrane Library to obtain relevant studies and were subjected to various subgroup and bioinformatics analyses. Selected twenty-three studies contained 13 cancer types comprising of 3294 patients from 7 nations. Univariate and multivariate data showed an association of high expression of miRNAs with the poor prognosis of cancer patients (p < 0.001). The subgroup analysis showed that lung cancer, breast cancer and papillary renal cell carcinoma (p < 0.001) have a negative association with the survival of patients. Our study is the first meta-analysis showing the association of miR-379/miR-656 cluster expression and overall survival, suggesting its potential as a prognostic indicator in multiple cancers.
