Throughout our lives, we have always been looking for new treatments to help us improve our appearance and, of course, our health. And fortunately, we now have new techniques and therapies that have helped us, such as exosome therapy.
Exosome therapy is one of the most cutting-edge treatments available in regenerative medical science. Exosome therapy has shown promising results in studies, and the number of treatments and applications is increasing.
It is important to know the main features, methods of action, and functions attributed, as well as all details involved in an exosome treatment.
What is an exosome?
They are released by the cells. They act as messengers between cells, passing genetic information, valuable proteins (DNA and RNA), and DNA signals.
Exosomes can travel through the body and deliver messages to cells, instructing them on how to behave or what’s happening in the surrounding area. Our cells naturally produce these messengers, stem cells being the primary producers.
What is Exosome Treatment?
The treatment for regenerative tissues has been developed using exosomes. These are produced by stem cells. The research found that stem cell repair can be duplicated by using exosomes. This could lead to cell-free regenerative treatments.
It is easy to understand. Exosomes can be applied directly to the wound or tissue that has deteriorated. This will improve communication between cells. Exosomes send out proteins to help cells repair tissue and regulate themselves.
The ability of exosomes to regenerate tissues is used to treat wounds and reduce the body’s deterioration. When applied to wounds, the treatment has two main effects:
First possible: a noticeable decrease in pain and inflammation. The exosome treatment contains immunomodulatory protein that regulates and facilitates the immune response of our body, specifically T and NK cells. This reduces pain and swelling.
Repair and remodeling of tissue: A second possible effect is that exosomes tell the cells to repair themselves and the tissue. This results in regeneration and long-term pain relief.
What is the treatment?
Direct injection is the most common way to apply exosomes. The exosomes in the ampoules are high concentrations and have lower concentrations than other allogeneic components like cytosines or chemokines.
This procedure can be done in the office without any preparation. The injection uses a fine needle, which does not cause pain or require long recovery times.
Exosome Therapy is available to anyone.
Cell-free regenerative therapy can benefit people suffering from a variety of illnesses. This treatment’s extent is still being investigated, but it is effective for sonic inflammation, immune disorders, degenerative disease, and Lyme.
Exosome-rich mixtures can help calm the body’s deterioration caused by genetic factors, environmental influences, or chronic diseases. They can also aid in the repair and de-inflammation of tissues.
How do we obtain exosomes?
Currently, the most commonly used techniques for exosome isolation are physical, mainly ultracentrifugation (UC), ultrafiltration (UF), and size exclusion chromatography (SEC), as well as commercial methods designed specifically for this purpose.
What do exosomes contain?
Exosomes are small vesicles (30 to 150 nm) containing complex RNA and protein cargoes. All cell types in culture secrete them and occur naturally in body fluids such as blood, saliva, urine, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and breast milk.
Exosomes have been used in various ways over the past few years. Their application is currently being explored for cell-free regenerative therapy, rejuvenating therapies, and cancer diagnosis and treatment, among other promising scenarios.
How long will it take for me to see the results?
Exosome therapy is a gradual process that gradually improves the patient’s health. However, the benefits will last a lifetime.
Regenerative medicine has brought new treatments that improve the quality of life and solve difficult-to-treat diseases. Exosome therapy has a variety of applications and is one of the most innovative therapies.
