"Exosomes are essentially an advanced cellular delivery and cell-to-cell communication system based on secreting nano encapsulated proteins and cell generated messages for a wide variety of purposes," says Dr. Plews. He continues explaining "The key now is to understand the breadth and depth of those messages from each cell type and look at ways to utilize or control that cellular information. It’s not just about having a lot of exosomes or the number of exosomes, it is actually more important that you’re starting with the right cell type with the right repertoire to produce exosomes, and then culturing those cells in the right way to trigger the production of exosomes that contain a message that serves a specific purpose."
