Extracellular vesicles and regenerative medicine

Edited by Jeffrey Karp, Armand Keating and Kelvin Ng

An article collection in Stem Cell Research & Therapy.

Evidence implicating extracellular vesicles (EVs) in regenerative processes is rapidly accumulating. This series reviews recent progress in understanding EV biology and how it may be harnessed for therapy.

  2. Review

    Acellular approaches for regenerative medicine: on the verge of clinical trials with extracellular membrane vesicles?

    Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are a heterogeneous population of naturally occurring secreted small vesicles, with distinct biophysical properties and different functions both in physiology and under pathologica...
