Exosomes are a mechanism of intercellular drug transfer


Exosomes are small membrane vesicles (30-100nm in diameter) secreted by cells into extracellular space. The present study evaluated the effect of chemotherapeutic agents on exosome production and/or release, and quantified the contribution of exosomes to intercellular drug transfer and pharmacodynamics. ...

Researchers use exosomes to control drug delivery

exosome rna

Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are naturally occurring membrane particles that mediate intercellular communication by delivering molecular information between cells. In this study, researchers from the University of Helsinki investigated the effectiveness of two different populations of EVs (microvesicle- and exosome-enriched) as ...
