Researchers from North Carolina State University have demonstrated that exosomes harvested from human skin cells can repair sun-damaged skin cells in mice. The therapy also appears to be more effective than retinol and stem cell treatment, and best of all, delivery of the therapy is needle-free. What are exosomes? Exosomes are essentially membrane-wrapped packages that...

Researchers from the Beijing Institute of Brain Disorders have discovered a new method of using exosomes to deliver aptamers that prevent the accumulation of α-synuclein aggregates, which are the cause of Parkinson's disease [1]. α-Synuclein Aggregates Like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease is characterized by protein aggregation caused by a loss of proteostasis, one of the hallmarks...

In a new study, researchers at the University of Pécs, Hungary used cell secretions known as exosomes to regenerate the thymus, one of the most important organs in the body. The thymus shrinks as we age The thymus is arguably one of the most critical organs in the body, and it is where new T...

A study by scientists at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre unveiled a mechanism through which deadly glioblastomas can metastasize. The research has been published in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics [1]. Abstract Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is a highly aggressive and heterogeneous form of primary brain tumors, driven by a complex repertoire of...

Today, we want to highlight more progress in a rapidly advancing area of medicine and talk about a new study that uses an exosomes-based approach for stroke treatment that repairs brain tissue. A stem cell-based approach to treating stroke Professor Steven Stice from the University of Georgia (UGA) and Nasrul Hoda of Augusta University led...

Stem cell therapies have been developing and evolving rapidly over the last decade, and extracellular vesicles (EVs) are another innovative approach that researchers are exploring. EVs are being explored for their potential as the basis of new cell therapies, taking the signals generated from various types of stem cells and delivering just those signals, rather...
