Extracellular Vesicles in Translational Medicine

Extracellular vesicles are formed by diverse cell types via exocytosis or budding and they transport, e.g., proteins and genetic material into extracellular space and body fluids. They represent their cellular origin and shuttle biological signals between cells. Vesicles participate in metastatic and thrombotic states and their formation is upregulated in inflammation, especially in orthopaedic diseases.
