Exosomes as Therapeutics
Since their discovery more than 30 years ago, extracellular vesicles — nanometer-sized cell-signaling particles — have been increasingly found to play a role in intercellular communication, capable of delivering functional proteins, mRNA transcripts and miRNA to cells throughout the body. Exosomes have the potential to target any cell in the body and as proved in ArunA’s studies are capable of multiple administrations via IV and of crossing the blood brain barrier non-invasively to reach the site of injury. Exosomes have shown great promise as potential therapeutics and as vehicles to carry drug payloads to the site of injury or disease.
