Exosomes and extracellular vesicles

exosomes ; vésicules extracellulaires

Long considered as cellular debris with no biological function, exosomes, and more generally extracellular vesicles (EVs), are now recognized as vectors of biological material with a role in intercellular communication. The building of knowledge on the subject has not only highlighted their role in certain pathologies, but also revealed their potential as biomarkers and therapeutic tools.
