Exosomes: The New Generation of Stem Cells

Exosomes are nanovesicles released by almost all cells and found in all body fluids Exosomes deliver their cargo including, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids) from originating cells to recipient cells. Exosomes derived from stem cells could be a promising alternative to cell-based therapy because exosomes would avoid most of the problems associated with cell-based therapy while recapitulating the therapeutic efficacy of stem cells. For example, Exosomes have no risk of tumor formation as they cannot replicate. They also can be sterilized by filtration and have a longer shelf-life than cells themselves. Being much smaller than stem cells, exosomes easily circulate through the body and reach sites of injury. In addition, long-term repetitive administration of exosomes does not elicit toxicity.

Many argue that exosomes may be more important than stem cells due to their unique ability to function as a “messenger” within the body,transferring information from cell to cell. Enhancing stem cell therapy with added exosomes is considered a superior and optimal therapy. At American Regenerative Medicine, we offer exosome therapy, which contains growth factors, in conjunction with stem cell therapy to enhance healing benefits.  

What are Exosomes, and why are they useful?

Exosomes are showing exciting promise – they are demonstrating great ability to provide therapy benefits. Exosomes are extracellular vesicles – or small structures within a cell – released from cells in response to injuries. Research is showing that exosomes play a key role in coagulation – when blood changes from a liquid to a gel, forming a clot. One of the most promising uses of exosomes involves rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disorder in which inflammation leads to pain and degradation of joints.
