Tumor-educated platelets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Liquid biopsies have been considered the holy grail in achieving effective cancer management, with blood tests offering a minimally invasive, safe, and sensitive alternative or complementary approach for tissue biopsies. Currently, blood-based liquid biopsy measurements focus on the evaluation of biomarker types, including circulating tumor DNA, circulating tumor cells, extracellular vesicles (exosomes and oncosomes), and tumor-educated platelets (TEPs). Despite the potential of individual techniques, each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Here, we provide further insight into TEPs.
