MicroRNAs are promising biomarkers for aggressive prostate cancer using a novel fluid source called expressed prostatic secretions (EPS) in urine, which is obtained non-invasively in the clinic. EPS-urine miRNAs also play functional roles in the prostate in promoting cancer progression and could be effective therapeutic targets for this disease.
