World J Gastrointest Oncol. 2022 Aug 15;14(8):1594-1596. doi: 10.4251/wjgo.v14.i8.1594.


The review article entitled "Exosomes as potential diagnosis and treatment for liver cancer " recently published in World Journal of Gastrointestinal Oncology 2022; 14: 334-347 concluded that exosomes can be used as effective biomarkers or therapeutic biotargets in liver cancer. Exosomes are a hot spot in the field of tumor diagnosis and treatment research. We had also previously published a review on exosomes and tumors. In this letter to the editor, we summarize the clinical application prospects and current challenges of exosomes.
