Cancer Cell-secreting Exosomes are Liquid Biopsy Markers for Early Diagnosis

  • ​Blood exosomes are extremely heterogeneous because all organ tissues and cells secrete exosomes into the blood
     

  • Therefore, early diagnosis of cancer is possible through the development of technology capable of detecting the heterogeneity of exosome biomarkers (surface protein, mRNA, miRNA and DNA)

Exosomes for Early-stage Cancer Diagnostics

​Exosomes are nanoparticles that are released and received by nearly all cells in the body. These highly-evolved vesicles act as one of our body’s communication systems, same for cancer cells, delivering important molecular payloads from cell to cell.
