Introduction to exosomes and other extracellular vesicles – Implications for personalized and precision medicine

Rey Magana – A recently discovered communication system used by cells to send messages across the human body promises to revolutionize our understanding of disease and how we treat it. Technologies based on this discovery promise to become important tools for our understanding, monitoring and treatment of some of man’s most insidious diseases such as cancer. The key elements comprising this communication system are nano and micron sized vesicles often called exosomes or extracellular vesicles (EVs), which are the carriers of the molecular information.
