This study was conducted in 94 lung adenocarcinoma patients matching pairs from current, former and never smokers' lung adenocarcinoma and non-malignant lung parenchymal tissue.   Investigators discovered different smoking-specific microRNA differences. These findings may explain distinct tumorigenic processes influenced by different smoking and non-smoking expositions.
