Exosomes – Highlights
Why Exosomes Are Being Explored as Diagnostic and Therapeutic Tools
In this article, we provide an overview of the biology of exosomes and explore their potential uses as diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
Exploiting Exosomes for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Evidence is mounting for exosomes playing a central role in many aspects of cancer biology. As researchers start to unravel the secrets of these elusive little vesicles, this is opening a host of exciting new opportunities to tackle cancer – from non-invasive diagnostics to innovative new therapeutics.
Exosomes: Tiny Vesicles With Enormous Potential
There's more to exosomes than first thought. This infographic provides a snapshot of the tiny cell-derived vesicles which have captured the attention of cell biologists and the medical world.
Exosomes: Definition, Function and Use in Therapy
Exosomes are a class of cell-derived extracellular vesicles of endosomal origin, and are typically 30-150 nm in diameter – the smallest type of extracellular vesicle. In this article, we explore exosomes' function and their potential uses in therapy.
Hybrid Sensor Could Help Diagnose Cancer
Researchers have developed a nanophotonic-microfluidic sensor that has potential applications in cancer detection, monitoring and treatment response assessment.
Nanochannels Light the Way Towards Developing New Drugs
A new technique to analyze biomolecules has been developed and could enable promising drug candidates to be identified at an earlier stage in the drug development pipeline.
Liquid Biopsy Could Predict Lung Cancer Immunotherapy Success Better Than a Tumor Biopsy
A protein found in extracellular vesicles shed by tumor cells could be used as a liquid biopsy biomarker to better predict the success of immunotherapy for lung cancer patients.
Breast Cancer and Diabetes Join Forces To Promote Disease
Breast cancer and diabetes are both common diseases, with past epidemiological data suggesting the two are linked. A new study has identified a mechanism by which breast cancer cells could impair the function of pancreatic islet cells.
Vesicle Therapy Helps Aged Mice Gain Muscle Mass
Scientists have developed a promising new method to combat the age-related losses in muscle mass that often accompany immobility after injury or illness. Their technique, demonstrated in mice, arrests the process by which muscles begin to deteriorate at the onset of exercise after a period of inactivity.
