Exosomes – Mysterious Messengers in Our Bodies

Recent research has shown that almost all organs send out messages and exchange information as though they were all communicating within a huge network inside the body. Tiny vesicles called “exosomes” are responsible for carrying the molecules that comprise these messages. We’ll look at how scientists are hoping to use these “exosomes” in various medical fields, such as for treating cancer and myocardial infarction, as well as in explaining the mechanism of aging.
