Discover the secrets of exosomes – from Sample to Insight

Exosomes function as shuttles for transferring functional molecules such as proteins, liquids and nucleic acids between donor and recipient cells. These nano-sized (30–100 nm) tiny vesicles have recently attracted a tremendous amount of attention from the scientific community. Research on exosomes has expanded significantly, as is clearly shown by the number of publications for a search… Read article →

New webinar: HER2, CTCs and tumor stemness

About 20–30% of breast cancer tumors overexpress the oncogene human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), which – if not treated with a targeted anti-HER2 regimen – leads to higher aggressiveness and mortality. Recently, a number of studies have shown that expression of HER2 in circulating tumor cells (CTCs) varies compared to expression in primary tumors…. Read article →

Messengers at the junction of inflammation and cancer: exosomes

The more we learn about exosomes, the more we realize just how powerful they are in cancer. As agents of cell-to-cell communication, exosomes play important roles in tumorigenesis, cancer progression, and metastasis. One of the most interesting areas in which exosomes are exerting their influence is at the interface of cancer and another key process… Read article →
