Recent evidence suggests that cancer cell-derived extracellular vesicles might facilitate immunoevasion. Glycans are known to play a key role in immunomodulation, especially when tethered to biological membranes. However, the extracellular vesicle glycocode in cancer immunoevasion remains a largely unexplored area with promising potential for new putative diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
