Extracellular Vesicles as "Garbage Collectors" or Communicators

Plasma extracellular vesicles were considered as the “garbage bags” or communicators of the cells released in the plasma for removal.

This view has recently changed dramatically. Extracellular vesicles contain proteins and RNA (miRNA) and it is established that they are actively involved in the communication between cells and tissues in biological processes as inflammation, coagulation and tissue repair.
