Extracellular Vesicles and Therapy


Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are known for their beneficial effects to repair damaged tissue. It is now clear that these MSCs secrete extracellular vesicles that have therapeutic potential that can be used as an “off the shelf” therapy in contrast to cell therapy.

Examples of applications investigated are: myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury, heart failure, skin wound healing and graft vs host disease.
