As exosomes become recognized for their benefits as cell-free therapeutics, exosome clinical trials are increasing in number. Exosomes are small vesicles ranging from 30-100nm in size that are found in nearly all eukaryotic fluids and facilitate a range of important cellular functions. They transfer DNA, RNA, and proteins to other cells, altering the function of target cells.
Exosome Clinical Trials
In addition to increasing in number, exosome clinical trials are tightly concentrated within specific regions of the world.
