: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death. Circulating elements have gained significant interest in the diagnosis and prognosis of NSCLC patients. Among these, platelets (PLTs) and their derived extracellular vesicles (P-EVs) are emerging eligible biosources as both number and genetic material transfers (RNA, proteins, and lipids). PLTs are mainly produced by the shedding of megakaryocytes and together with P-EVs, participate in a variety of pathological processes including thrombosis, tumor progression, and metastasis. Here, we performed an extensive literature review focusing on PLTs and P-EVs as potential diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive markers for NSCLC patient management.

Abstract

: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death. Circulating elements have gained significant interest in the diagnosis and prognosis of NSCLC patients. Among these, platelets (PLTs) and their derived extracellular vesicles (P-EVs) are emerging eligible biosources as both number and genetic material transfers (RNA, proteins, and lipids). PLTs are mainly produced by the shedding of megakaryocytes and together with P-EVs, participate in a variety of pathological processes including thrombosis, tumor progression, and metastasis. Here, we performed an extensive literature review focusing on PLTs and P-EVs as potential diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive markers for NSCLC patient management.
