The 3rd International Symposium on Microgenomics 2023 was held in Florence (Italy) 29-30 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.
