What is an Exosome?





  1. Exosomes are cell-derived vesicles that are present in many and perhaps all biological fluids, including blood, urine, and cultured medium of cell cultures. The reported diameter of exosomes is between 30 and 100 nm, which is larger than LDL, but much smaller than for example, red blood cells.
We asked 10 prominent scientists to share their thoughts on science and in particular the field of exosomes research. The video-series tell the story and history of this exciting new area of research, and its impact on other research fields such as cancer and immunology. The video-series also discusses the potential future therapeutic and diagnostic applications that may come from exosome research.
