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.
