Exosomes

Exosomes are considered a cellular byproduct or extracellular vesicle as they have no nucleus and don't have the ability to divide. They can be secreted by many types of cells including stem cells and immune cells. These also contain growth factors, cytokines and many other important materials. 

Exosomes help with signaling between cells, maintenance of homeostasis and coordination of activities. When they are released from a cell they bring information with them to another cell, which influences the behavior and function of the recipient cell. Depending on that cell, the reaction from that information transferred may be a repair response or a “reprogramming” of the cell. Exosomes that are derived from mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have shown potential with healing and reducing inflammation. 

As you age, your stem cells no longer send out as many exosomes as it did when you were young. If you take a younger person's stem cells and place them with that of an older person, they communicate information on how to repair via exosomes. As with stem cells, treatment may assist with improving function and decreasing pain that can be associated with many chronic conditions, injury or general wear and tear. While results vary based on the individual, patients have reported that they are able to walk farther, participate in recreational activities, breathe easier, sleep better and experience increased energy.
