Role of tumor-derived exosomes in cancer metastasis

exosomes

The highlights of cancer research include the discovery of exosomes, which are small (30-100 nm) sized vesicular nanoparticles released virtually by all cells. Tumor-derived exosomes (TDEs) are notoriously known for orchestrating the invasion-metastasis cascade via systemic pathways...

Exosomes in Cancer Nanomedicine and Immunotherapy

exosomes

Exosomes (versatile, cell-derived nanovesicles naturally endowed with exquisite target-homing specificity and the ability to surmount in vivo biological barriers) hold substantial promise for developing exciting approaches in drug delivery and cancer immunotherapy. Specifically, bioengineered exosomes are being successfully deployed to ...

Advances in Exosome Quantification Techniques

exosomes

Accumulated evidence has indicated that exosomes play a vital role in many biological processes such as intercellular communication, antigen presentation, and waste management. Since the fingerprints of exosomes resemble their parental cells, they are widely recognized as next generation biomarkers ...
