A group of researchers has found that extracellular vesicles carrying a specific type of microRNA can attenuate age-related inflammation and increase immune response following flu vaccination in mice [1]. Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are an important part of intercellular communication. These tiny nanoscale bubbles are secreted by cells into the intercellular space and can carry various...

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...
