Exosome research is on the rise, fueled by an increasing recognition of the central role that exosomes play in intercellular (cell-to-cell) communication and transportation. As intracellular messengers, exosomes have the potential to mediate many of the therapeutics effects commonly associated with cells, with far fewer risks.

For competitors within the exosome marketplace, it is vital to assess existing and future trends. One of the best tools for assessing scientific progress is to review rates of exosome research.
When exosome publications are analyzed, U.S. authors have published approximately 40% of the articles and Chinese authors take second place.
When the term “exosome” is searched within scientific literature, Dr. Susanne Gabrielsson from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden is the leading author, with 37 articles, making her one of the global authorities on exosome research.

Unicyte AG on Exosomes Therapy
When the term “extracellular vesicles” is searched, Unicyte AG, a regenerative medicine unit of Fresenius Medical Care, takes the lead. Headquartered in Switzerland, the company has published more than 100 papers on exosomes and extracellular vesicles in combination with Prof. Giovanni Camussi. The company is also a market leader in terms of patents and translational programs.
Leading Exosome Research Journals
Interestingly, two scientific journals have been particularly favorable toward exosome publications, publishing the greatest quantity to date:
- PLoS ONE – PloS ONE, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science, has published 252 articles with the term “exosome” or “exosomes” in the title. A full list of the articles can be viewed here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=%22PLoS+ONE%22+AND+exosome
- Journal of Biological Chemistry – The Journal of Biological Chemistry, a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, has published 132 articles with the term “exosome” or “exosomes” in the title. A full list of the articles can be viewed here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=%22J+Biol+Chem%22+AND+exosome
Google Trend data also shows a clear linear increase in interest in exosome-related topics. To compete for dominance within this market, it is essential to identify trends as they begin to impact the marketplace, not after they are in full effect.
