iToBoS project was presented in the EACR congress 2023 (European Association of Cancer Research), held in Torino (Italy) from 12 to 15 June.
iToBoS was there with the group from the University of Trieste with a poster entitled “Exosome micro RNA as liquid biopsy biomarkers for skin melanomas”. In this poster, three miRNAs, namely hsa-miR-200c-3p, hsa-miR-144-3p, and hsa-miR-221-3p, were shown to be differentially expressed in plasma-derived exosomes from melanoma patients and controls. Furthermore, the combined expression level of the miRNAs mentioned above resulted in a robust candidate biomarker for discriminating between nevi and melanoma with high accuracy.
