New insights in melanoma biomarkers: long-noncoding RNAs

0

Melanoma is one of the leading cancers worldwide, distinguished for its malignancy and low survival rates. Although the poor outcome could improve with an early diagnosis and a good monitoring of the disease, current melanoma biomarkers display several limitations which make them useless. Interestingly, long-noncoding RNAs are secreted into the bloodstream inside exosomes by a wide range of malignant cells, and several of them have been validated as promising circulating molecular signatures of other tumors, but not melanoma.
