Exosomes – Highlights
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 in Cancer
Explore the role that exosomes play in the development of cancer, learn how they can be utilized for cancer diagnostics, and discover potential therapeutic applications.
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.
Researchers Suggest Explanation for Postmenopausal Weight Gain
New research has found that a reduction in estrogen receptors in the heart results in obesity in female mice, but not male mice – findings that may provide important health insights for postmenopausal women.
Liquid Biopsy Test: Protocol and Steps
In this article, we explore some of the advanced molecular techniques that are most used for detecting the main biomarkers involved in liquid biopsy.
A Simple Urine Test Could Detect Brain Tumors
Researchers in Japan have developed a new device to identify proteins – which are diagnostic biomarkers of brain cancer – in urine. The study is published in ACS Nano.
New Blood Test Detects and Profiles Prostate Cancers
A nanotechnology-based "liquid biopsy" has been shown to detect and profile prostate cancers, even when tiny amounts are present.
