Abstract Mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) is rare and aggressive subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. New treatment modalities, including intensive induction regimens with immunochemotherapy and autologous stem cell transplantation, have improved survival, however, many patients still relapse, and there is a need for novel therapeutic strategies. Recent progress has been made in the understanding of the role of microRNAs (miRNAs) in MCL. Comparisons of tumor samples from MCL patients to their normal counterparts (naïve B-cells) have identified differentially expressed miRNAs with roles in cellular growth and survival pathways, as demonstrated in various biological model systems. In addition, MCL clinico-pathological and prognostic subtypes can be identified by using individual miRNAs or miRNA classifiers. miRNA based therapies have now shown efficacy in animal models, and many efforts are currently being done to further develop these drugs for use in patients. Thus, there is hope that specific targeting of pathogenic miRNAs may be used in MCL cases when conventional therapies fail. Here, we review the current knowledge about the role of miRNAs in MCL, and highlight the perspectives for clinical use.
