Exosomes – A New Frontier in Regenerative Medicine
Exosomes are extracellular micro-vesicles (30-150nm) that are involved in direct cell to cell communication. Direct Biologics’ ExoFlo™ exosomes are isolated from human bone marrow mesenchymal stem/ stromal cells (MSCs). They are purified using proprietary cGMP processing and are sterile filtered and tested per USP<71> sterility testing. The unique benefit to Direct Biologics exosomes is they provide a wide array of regulatory proteins to stimulate and modulate many processes within the normal healing cascade.
Exosomes are not cells. Exosomes are tiny lipid vesicles that are secreted from a cell and are about 1/1,000th the size of a cell.
Stem cell therapy is the use of stem cells for the treatment or prevention of a disease or condition This therapy has been used in transplantation, both with autologous stem cells or with allogeneic cells. Various sources of stem cells are studied in addition to bone marrow
