ExRNA in Biofluids as Biomarkers for Brain Tumors

exosome rna

EV RNAs have tremendous clinical potential as diagnostic, subtype-defining, and prognostic biomarkers in GBM. The identification of new EV RNA targets and validation of existing EV RNA targets will be accelerated by large-scale biorepositories established for clinic sample warehousing and ...
