    • BEAMing and Droplet Digital PCR Analysis of Mutant IDH1 mRNA in Glioma Patient Serum and Cerebrospinal Fluid Extracellular Vesicles 

      Chen, Walter W; Balaj, Leonora; Liau, Linda M; Samuels, Michael L; Kotsopoulos, Steve K; Maguire, Casey A; LoGuidice, Lori; Soto, Horacio; Garrett, Matthew; Zhu, Lin Dan; Sivaraman, Sarada; Chen, Clark; Wong, Eric T; Carter, Bob S; Hochberg, Fred H; Breakefield, Xandra O; Skog, Johan (Nature Publishing Group, 2013)
      Development of biofluid-based molecular diagnostic tests for cancer is an important step towards tumor characterization and real-time monitoring in a minimally invasive fashion. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are released ...
    • Chip-based analysis of exosomal mRNA mediating drug resistance in glioblastoma 

      Shao, Huilin; Chung, Jaehoon; Lee, Kyungheon; Balaj, Leonora; Min, Changwook; Carter, Bob S.; Hochberg, Fred H.; Breakefield, Xandra O.; Lee, Hakho; Weissleder, Ralph (Nature Pub. Group, 2015)
      Real-time monitoring of drug efficacy in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a major clinical problem as serial re-biopsy of primary tumours is often not a clinical option. MGMT (O6-methylguanine DNA methyltransferase) and ...
    • Dopa-Responsive Dystonia: Functional Analysis of Single Nucleotide Substitutions within the 5’ Untranslated GCH1 Region 

      Armata, Ioanna A.; Balaj, Leonora; Kuster, John K.; Zhang, Xuan; Tsai, Shelun; Armatas, Andreas A.; Multhaupt-Buell, Trisha J.; Soberman, Roy; Breakefield, Xandra O.; Ichinose, Hiroshi; Sharma, Nutan (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      Background: Mutations in the GCH1 gene are associated with childhood onset, dopa-responsive dystonia (DRD). Correct diagnosis of DRD is crucial, given the potential for complete recovery once treated with L-dopa. The ...
    • Heparin affinity purification of extracellular vesicles 

      Balaj, Leonora; Atai, Nadia A.; Chen, Weilin; Mu, Dakai; Tannous, Bakhos A.; Breakefield, Xandra O.; Skog, Johan; Maguire, Casey A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
      Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are lipid membrane vesicles released by cells. They carry active biomolecules including DNA, RNA, and protein which can be transferred to recipient cells. Isolation and purification of EVs from ...
    • Meeting report: discussions and preliminary findings on extracellular RNA measurement methods from laboratories in the NIH Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium 

      Laurent, Louise C.; Abdel-Mageed, Asim B.; Adelson, P. David; Arango, Jorge; Balaj, Leonora; Breakefield, Xandra; Carlson, Elizabeth; Carter, Bob S.; Majem, Blanca; Chen, Clark C.; Cocucci, Emanuele; Danielson, Kirsty; Courtright, Amanda; Das, Saumya; Elmageed, Zakaria Y. Abd; Enderle, Daniel; Ezrin, Alan; Ferrer, Marc; Freedman, Jane; Galas, David; Gandhi, Roopali; Huentelman, Matthew J.; Van Keuren-Jensen, Kendall; Kalani, Yashar; Kim, Yong; Krichevsky, Anna M.; Lai, Charles; Lal-Nag, Madhu; Laurent, Clara D.; Leonardo, Trevor; Li, Feng; Malenica, Ivana; Mondal, Debasis; Nejad, Parham; Patel, Tushar; Raffai, Robert L.; Rubio, Renee; Skog, Johan; Spetzler, Robert; Sun, Jie; Tanriverdi, Kahraman; Vickers, Kasey; Wang, Liang; Wang, Yaoyu; Wei, Zhiyun; Weiner, Howard L.; Wong, David; Yan, Irene K.; Yeri, Ashish; Gould, Stephen (Co-Action Publishing, 2015)
      Extracellular RNAs (exRNAs) have been identified in all tested biofluids and have been associated with a variety of extracellular vesicles, ribonucleoprotein complexes and lipoprotein complexes. Much of the interest in ...
    • Potential functional applications of extracellular vesicles: a report by the NIH Common Fund Extracellular RNA Communication Consortium 

      Quesenberry, Peter J.; Aliotta, Jason; Camussi, Giovanni; Abdel-Mageed, Asim B.; Wen, Sicheng; Goldberg, Laura; Zhang, Huang-Ge; Tetta, Ciro; Franklin, Jeffrey; Coffey, Robert J.; Danielson, Kirsty; Subramanya, Vinita; Ghiran, Ionita; Das, Saumya; Chen, Clark C.; Pusic, Kae M.; Pusic, Aya D.; Chatterjee, Devasis; Kraig, Richard P.; Balaj, Leonora; Dooner, Mark (Co-Action Publishing, 2015)
      The NIH Extracellular RNA Communication Program's initiative on clinical utility of extracellular RNAs and therapeutic agents and developing scalable technologies is reviewed here. Background information and details of the ...
