DNA Found in Exosomes in Cancer of the Pancreas – with Characteristic Mutations !

We recently commented (here) on the interesting properties of exosomes that were explored as possible messengers within the body including saliva in the context specifically of biomarkers in pancreatic cancer by Wong and dental colleagues at UCLA. Exosomes are tiny bubble type structures found in most biological fluids that contain proteins and other substances including […]
