- ... It is a well-known phenomenon that cancer cells release key biological information such as DNA, RNA or proteins into body fluids (e.g., blood, urine or saliva). The analysis of these molecules—often encapsulated within nanovesicules called exosomes—is highly attractive, because it could replace current surgical biopsies, which are painful, costly and potentially risky for patients. For example, cu ...
