Cancer Researchers Explore Exosomes - National Cancer Institute
Article on Exosomes and Cancer
This new article describes recent research on tiny vesicles (small, fluid-filled sacs) called exosomes that are released into the blood by cells. Scientists are studying exosomes to gain insights into cancer and develop clinical tools for patients. Studies have suggested that one day doctors might use exosomes to help diagnose cancer, to profile genetic changes in tumors, and even to help prevent the disease from spreading.
