Season 2, Bonus: Blood Review Series on Platelets and Cancer
Listen now
Description
Platelets are critical for hemostasis and thrombosis, but recent research highlights their role in many other processes, including inflammation, wound healing, and lymphangiogenesis. In this episode, Drs. José López, Elisabeth Battinelli, Craig Williams, and Owen McCarty discuss the review series on platelets and cancer. The series focuses on the emerging role of platelets in cancer, influencing tumor growth and metastasis, immune evasion, and tumor angiogenesis. The reviews present the current understanding of mutual cross talk between platelets and tumors, communication mediated by RNA transfer and extracellular vesicles, and the potential of antiplatelet agents for cancer treatment.
