Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are key mediators of intercellular communication that have been ignored for decades. Tumour cells benefit from the secretion of vesicles as they can influence the behaviour of neighbouring tumour cells within the tumour microenvironment. In our laboratory, we study the influence of tumour derived extracellular vesicles in the tumour microenvironment at metastatic places. Moreover, we are also addressing the potential value of tumour EVs as prognostic biomarkers in liquid biopsies, specially blood and lymphatic fluid, and the use of these tools as early detectors of metastases. Finally, tumour derived extracellular vesicles could define new targets to block melanoma metastasis, which is still the main cause of death of melanoma patients.
